Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Ashleigh Kane is teaming up with Gray Wielebinski in choosing the theme for this instalment. Gray is a visual artists working between London and Los Angeles, who’s practice encompasses collage, animation, sound, video, performance, and illustration. Gray has provided the following quote from “Solaris” by Stanislaw Lem. ‘We have no need of other worlds. We need mirrors.’
After over a decade of serving the international photography community Der Greif is now finally a registered non-profit. We believe this organizational structure best reflects our artistic and cultural mission. As always, your artistic contribution makes our work on Der Greif possible.
Since starting Guest Room in January 2015, we’ve been working hard to invite a broad range of practitioners, from gallerists to editors and curators. We are convinced that this format is an interesting and low-barrier approach to help artists get their work in front of people who might be interested in working with them. For this reason, we are asking you to consider making a financial contribution as well. That’s why we’re suggesting a voluntary donation of 5 € as a submission fee. 100% of the funds we collect from your donations will go towards helping us continue providing interesting opportunities for the photography community through Guest Room, and thus expand Der Greif.
We believe in inclusivity. We don’t want this suggested donation to stand in the way of your submission. If you are unable to contribute financially, please send an email to email@example.com to receive a voucher code which will allow you to enter for free.
Thank you so much!
