THEME FOR GUEST ROOM

Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Dominic Bell is teaming up with Gabby Laurent, a London based photographer, artist and long-time collaborator of Dominic in chosing the theme for this instalment.

Gabby has set the following framework: Use the title of a book they’ve both been reading for different reasons - ‘Moving and Being Moved’ by Yvonne Rainer.

Submissions for this Guest Room should consider this concept, whether explicitly or abstractly. Dominic Bell will be working with the quote in mind when making his selection for his Guest Room.

WHY SUBMIT TO GUEST ROOM?

  • Show your work to outstanding curators and gallerists.
  • Get the chance to be published at Der Greif website, a highly-frequented international source of photographic art.
  • Submit for free or for a small donation – you decide.

VOLUNTARY DONATION

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 voucher@dergreif.org to receive a voucher code which will allow you to enter for free.

Thank you so much!
