CHARACTERS OF RESONANCE "If acceleration is the problem, then resonance may well be the solution." *
*Hartmut Rosa, Resonance. A Sociology of Our Relationship to the World, translated by James C. Wagner, Polity Press, Cambridge 2019 (ebook version), p. 19. In this book, Hartmut Rosa, professor at the University of Jena and one of Germany's most important sociologists, presents an approach to solving the civilizational crises of our time: his critical diagnosis is that the crises of our world are leaving us less and less time and space to feel at home as human beings in resonant (world) relationships.

Guest Room is a monthly online exhibition with open submissions curated in real-time by personalities from the international photography scene. Der Greif is an award-winning organization for contemporary photography. It is print-publication, online-publication, curatorial team and joint project all at once. Der Greif connects the digital and the analogue, exploring and expanding the borders and limits of image-distribution and -reception in the digital era.
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 6 € 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.
