All art forms 

Every year, Futures brings together the work of more than seventy artists and the expertise of thirteen European photography institutions in one festival. Under the theme HYBRIDS: Forging New Realities as Counter-Narrative, Futures and Melkweg Expo explore how counternarratives and artistic experimentation challenge and question our reality. The festival is made possible with the support of the Creative Europe program of the European Union.

10+1 artists explore the main theme of the festival in a hybrid exhibition, showing their work in Melkweg Expo and in an online environment. The projects have been selected through an open call for all talents who have joined Futures in the past four years. The curator is Marina Paulenka (co-founder of Organ Vida and former artistic director of Unseen).

These are the selected artists:

  • Maija Savolainen
  • Hien Hoang
  • Emily Graham
  • Carlos Alba
  • Eva Kreuger
  • Marta Bogdanska
  • Alexey Shlyk
  • Valeria Cherchiz
  • Io Sivertsen
  • Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond-Skeaping

Artist Jean-Vincent Simonet will give a performance.
