The Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie is characterized by the ideas of its internationally renowned guest curators, whose line-up changes every two years. The biennial takes place in the main exhibition halls of Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg.


Since 2005, the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie takes place every two years in Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg. For each edition, an internationally renowned guest curator is invited to develop six thematic exhibitions on a total of around 4,500 square meters in the most important exhibition houses throughout the three cities. A multifaceted analogue and digital educational programme for a large regional and international audience accompanies the exhibitions. In addition, the Biennale has established itself as an international get-together for photography experts.

To realize the Biennale, cultural organisers and promoters in the Rhine-Neckar region work closely with artists and partners from all corners of the globe. The Biennale engages the three cities and their cultural institutions in a dialogue and has already become a model in Germany and beyond.

Shahidul Alam, Tanzim Wahab and Munem Wasif will curate the Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie 2024.
