The 7. FOTOFESTIVAL Mannheim-Ludwigshafen-Heidelberg in 2017 will be curated by a team of experts led by Florian Ebner (Museum Folkwang, Essen) and Christin Müller (freelance curator, Leipzig). This year’s additional curators include Fabian Knierim, Boaz Levin, Kerstin Meincke, and Kathrin Schönegg.

Major shifts in contemporary image culture serve as the central concept of the 7. Fotofestival, which includes changes in current as well as historic perspectives on the medium of photography. In this show Florian Ebner and Christin Müller have teamed up with four young curators to capture a new perspective of these fields of photography. Fabian Knierim, Boaz Levin, Kerstin Meincke, and Kathrin Schönegg represent this new curatorial approach. Three of the six curators are graduates of the renowned Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung curatorial program. The curatorial concept of the 7. Fotofestivals is expected to be released in January 2017.
