CIRCULATION(S), A PHOTOGRAPHIC EVENT DEDICATED TO YOUNG EUROPEAN PHOTOGRAPHY
The third edition of the festival Circulation(s) that took place in Bagatelle Park in Paris last March was with 28’000 visitors a very successful experience. Offering a fresh perspective on Europe through photography, the Festival Circulation(s) set to light 43 young photographers, who were invited to exhibit their work to a large public in a unique place.

This success has determined Fetart to launch the fourth edition of the festival Circulation(s) for the first time at the CENTQUATRE, a multidisciplinary culture space at the east of Paris. This fourth edition will take place in February 7th to march 16th, 2014 leading the festival Circulation(s) to become a major annual event devoted to contemporary photography.

The call for applications is aimed at all European photographers or residents in Europe in their early career as artists. There is no theme and freestanding photographic installations are allowed. At the end of the call, about 20 photographers representing a large overview of the new generation of European photographers will be selected to exhibit their works.
