Münchner Kammerspiele x Der Greif: “Auf nach Woanders / Off to Elsewhere”

Münchner Kammerspiele x Der Greif: “Auf nach Woanders / Off to Elsewhere” is an opportunity brought to you by Der Greif in collaboration with the contemporary theater Münchner Kammerspiele.

Münchner Kammerspiele is planning a creative project for the visual campaign of their upcoming season from September 2024 until July 2025, and we are excited to give you the chance to have one of your images as a part of it. This international open call forms the basis for a diverse set of 40 images curated by Çağla İlk – this year’s curator of the German pavilion at the 60th Venice Biennial 2024. The selection will be the foundation for the visual design of Münchner Kammerspiele in the upcoming season. You are invited to challenge and visually enrich the season’s thematic claim of Münchner Kammerspiele, “Auf nach Woanders / Off to Elsewhere”, with your images. One of the most important theaters in Germany for courageous contemporary theater arts, Münchner Kammerspiele bring new, previously unheard voices to the stage to negotiate the urgent issues of our time. The theater’s attitude is open, passionate, and confident - aspiring to be a space that enables its audience to dream about and negotiate our future.

The selected works will be featured by the theater in various ways, including:

  • Posters throughout Munich’s cityscape and Münchener Kammerspiele
  • Interior design of the Münchner Kammerspiele
  • Münchner Kammerspiele website & social media
  • Print and online advertisements
  • Printed materials, such as folding brochures, season guides, and various postcards
  • Merchandise, for non-commercial purposes (e.g. t-shirts, bags, matchboxes) To get the chance to sell your work for a license fee to Münchner Kammerspiele submit below by April 18.

Open Call:
Issue 17 by Torbjørn Rødland

We are excited to announce Torbjørn Rødland as the guest editor for Issue 17.

Curiosity, criticality, artifice and reverence for the natural world appear throughout Torbjørn Rødland’s work and often in the same image, forging links between twentieth-century art photography and twenty-first-century approaches to image-making. Often prompted by non-photographic imagery that he transforms into real-world photographic subjects, Rødland portrays scenes designed to generate psychological reaction through his depiction of highly sensory qualities.

We invite you to submit work that responds to the theme, “One Day Soon.” Rødland wants to see the medium of photography opening up and pushed forward in response to the rise of generative AI; beyond conceptualism and critical appropriation, towards a grounded but updated mysticism.

We look forward to receiving your submission by the deadline of May 2.

Guest Room: Christiane Pratsch Monarchi & Eva Eicker

Guest Room is dedicated to igniting collaboration. Christiane Monarchi, the founding co-editor of Hapax Magazine and founding editor of Photomonitor, is teaming up with curator Eva Eicker, an expert focusing on social and cultural issues for critical engagement with contemporary photography. Together they have designed the next theme for your submissions: "Wortbildsalat / word-image-salad" as an invitation to create a communal poem.

This theme draws inspiration from Surrealist salons, reflecting the artistic practices of figures such as André Breton and Marcel Duchamp, who famously collaborated on "cadavre exquis" or "exquisite corpse" creations, merging words or drawings.

Artists are invited to submit images accompanied by a caption. We welcome you to share an inner experience of the submitted photograph with us and join in crafting a photographic "Wordbildsalat / word-image-salad". We are implementing a Guest Room Scholarship, sponsored by MPB: an artist stipend of 1.000 € to one of the selected submitters. For the chance to be awarded a stipend submit before the deadline on May 8. Learn more below. Supported by MPB, the largest global platform to buy, sell and trade used photo and video kit.
