In addition to the nurturing of talents from various international academies, BredaPhoto also focuses on the development of recently graduated talent emerging onto the contemporary art market. In addition to the selection of student exhibitors, an international group of recently graduated photographers was selected to form an artists’ collective for the first six weeks of the festival. At the premises of Witte Rook eight alumni will be working and present their progress every saturday from 10.00 – 17.00.
In our series of informal lectures, Witte Rook on Sunday afternoon, we focus on the personal experience of being an Artist in Residence. On sunday September 23rd there will be an edition of the informal experience based lectures.
