Urs Stahel, Curator of the 6th Fotofestival
We are very pleased that Urs Stahel is going to curate the 6th Fotofestival edition in autumn 2015.
Urs Stahel is the founding director of Fotomuseum Winterthur, which, in the 20 years under his leadership, has evolved into one of the most important photography institutions. The internationally active photography specialist is additionally the co-founder of Kunsthalle Zurich, visiting professor at the University of Zurich, and curator at MAST, the new centre of industrial culture in Bologna. He is the curator and author of numerous exhibitions and publications.
For the upcoming Fotofestival Urs Stahel will develop an overriding exhibition concept that will give rise to discussions from various perspectives at the participating institutions.
"I am very much looking forward to this new challenge. Fotofestival Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg has evolved into a highly respected European biennial. Photography is taken really seriously here."
An exciting 6th Fotofestival is looked forward to by the whole Festival team!
