Ends17 Nov 2023
- Location Bratislava, Slovakia
The 14th edition of the festival, under the title “The House of Plausible, Probable, Possible and Preferable Futures”, is about a vision of the third millennium.
The 14th OFF Bratislava is a platform for fresh talents from the photography scene. During its 13-year history, the aim of the event has been to create conditions for the promotion and support of emerging artists working in the field of photography and new media.
In 2023, the festival theme resonates with the idea that art had the power to foretell the future. Thanks to technological developments, art has the possibility to progress, advance, and evolve within new mediums and platforms. New formats of expression are allowing humans to manifest themselves in a way that reflects the technological advancements of the era. The vision of the future world is open, multifaceted, and contradictory and brings countless possibilities for interpretation in artistic storytelling.
An integral part of the festival this year will be again the OFF Academy section, presenting exhibitions of universities, and other educational institutions; the OFF Libris section, presenting self-published photobooks; and the OFF Satellite section, presenting exhibitions organized by external galleries. Discussions and international cultural exchanges will be encouraged by individual lectures, workshops and roundtables.
