Plat(t)form 2017

Emerging artists and photographers present their portfolios


The twelfth curated international portfolio viewing featuring young emerging European photographers will be held on the weekend of 26 to 28 January 2018. Fotomuseum once again invites 42 photographers to Winterthur to present their work for two hours to the public and a selected team of experts in Fotomuseum’s exhibition spaces. Plat(t)form is aimed at professionals such as curators, gallery owners, publishers, editors and photographers. At the same time the event offers interested visitors an opportunity of discovering the work of young photographers and artists and of meeting them in person.

SAT, 27 JANUARY 2018, 11:00–19:00
SUN, 28 JANUARY 2018, 11:00–17:00

FRI, 26 JANUARY 2018, 19:30–21:00
The invited experts and Pro Helvetia guests introduce themselves and their work.

Participation takes place only upon invitation. Each year, Fotomuseum asks around 50 curators, professors, publishers, editors, gallerists from all over Europe to nominate up to five photographers from their regions. From these nominations, Fotomuseum selects the 42 participants. The participants receive a travel fee.

Main sponsor of Plat(t)form is the Luma Foundation.
