Rotterdam Photo Festival 2020
február 6 @ 16:00 - február 9 @ 18:00 CET
Rotterdam Photo Festival is an annual photo manifestation that takes place during Art Rotterdam Week, where art lovers will have the opportunity to visit numerous art and design events. Located at Deliplein (Katendrecht district), Rotterdam Photo celebrates the wide spectrum of photography as it presents itself in our contemporary image culture. Together with the exhibitions at the Nederlands Fotomuseum and the fine art photography fair Haute
Photographie, the ‘Kop van Zuid’ will transform into the one-stop hub for photography fans from February 6th-9th, 2020.
Rotterdam Photo’s theme of the year 2020 is TRANSITIONS. The world has reached a historical turning point: see the rise of populism, Brexit, the Trump era and all the (humanitarian) crises that emerge from that. The near future is uncertain. These crises, or better: transitions, will form the red line of Rotterdam Photo 2020.
Transitions as processes or periods of change from one condition to the next, call out to reflect. In our society, we see transitions of all sorts; from gender to energy transitions. These transitions aren’t separate phenomenons, but are in fact inextricably linked and interwoven. However, as Professor of Sustainability Jan Rotmans brings: we don’t live in a time of transitions, but in an era-transition. The world seems to be changing more and more into a comprehensive system in which everything depends on everything else.
