Theme for Guest Room

Guest Room aims to spark collaboration. Sarah Johanna Theurer, curator at Haus der Kunst in Munich, has decided to collaborate with the art director & design strategist Clemens Jahn.

The two have developed the following framework for your submissions: "Living Spaces”.

The escalating climate crisis, rapid inflation, mass migration, and unrestrained technologism keep transforming our natural, social, and economic environments. Solastalgia, the grief about the destruction or massive transformation of one’s living space, has become a common experience for many human beings. What are the living spaces we inhabit today, and which new ones can we – or do we have to – create?

About Der Greif Guest Room

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.

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