About

Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Johanne Affricot is teaming up with Silvia Rosi in choosing the theme for this instalment. Silvia is an Italian/Togolaise, London-based artist working with photography, text and video to explore ideas of memory, origins and diaspora. She is the recipient of the Jerwood Photoworks Awards (2020). Silvia has provided the following quote by Chinua Achebe from the novel Things Fall Apart as a framework for your submissions:

"There is no story that is not true ... The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others."

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!
