Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Lucy Soutter, writer and Course Leader of the Photography Arts MA at the University of Westminster, has chosen to collaborate with Gauri Gill, an artist based in New Delhi. Gauri’s remarkable photographic work emerges from longstanding relationships with communities and artists, in multi-layered collaborations that involve deep levels of trust. She has exhibited widely in India and internationally, including the 58th Venice Biennale, MoMA PS1 in New York, Documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel and Kochi Biennale 2016.
The theme Gauri Gill has offered as a framework for your submissions is "Interdependence."

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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a voucher code which will allow you to enter for free.
