Issue 12 Theme

After 10 years and 10 print issues, Der Greif has decided to explore new territories and to change its appearance. In our future issues, we invite guest editors to work with the same concepts of de- and recontextualizing single images through their individual working methods. Issue 11 has been guest-edited by Jason Fulford.

For issue 12 we are thrilled to be hosting Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin to guest-edit the issue. They have set the following framework for submissions: Broomberg & Chanarin want to see photographic images that are too private, too quiet, too violent, too political, too subversive or too explicit to share online. Images that should never belong to facebook, instagram and others.

Why submit to issue 12?

  • Have your work seen by artist duo Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin
  • Get the chance to be published in issue 12, become part of a truly collective work of art, guest-edited by Broomberg & Chanarin and get a free copy plus additional copies at a highly discounted rate
  • Get the chance to publish an Artist Feature on dergreif.org, a highly-frequented international source of photographic art
  • Be part of related events Der Greif will organize in relation to the release of issue 12

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.

This year we are asking you to consider making a financial contribution as well. That’s why we’re suggesting a voluntary donation of 12 € as a submission fee. 100% of the funds we collect from your donations will go towards helping us produce issue 12, 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!

About Der Greif

DER GREIF is an award-winning organisation for contemporary photography. As a print publication, international online platform, and as a curatorial team, DER GREIF’s aim is to facilitate and help shape dialogues between image-makers and the images themselves. The artistic core and root of the project is our annual, ad-free print publication. The website is an exhibition-, communication-, and information platform for participants and anyone interested in contemporary photography. DER GREIF connects the digital (global) and the analogue (local), exploring and expanding the borders and limitations of image distribution and reception in a digital era. All DER GREIF projects connect virtual, physical and / or printed spaces.
