Regular Meeting / Artist Talk

»FOTOTREFF Berlin #28«

You are warmly invited to the 28th Fototreff meeting on Saturday, 30th of March at 7 pm at STUDIO JACOB & REISCHEL in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

Talk

At FOTOTREFF #28 in March, we would like to introduce two magazines and their editors. Flurina Rothenberger, founder of KLAYM, a growing network of young photographers from Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa, and editor of The NICE Magazine, a publication that publishes contributions and works by young creatives from changing African cities is our guest. She is in conversation with Anna-Alix Koffi, editor of the magazine SOMETHING WE AFRICANS GOT, a magazine about art and critical thinking from Africa and the black world. The focus of the evening will be on the discursive and collaborative work practices of the projects. Excerpts from the upcoming NICE issue from Katlehong / Johannesburg in South Africa will be presented. The conversation will be held in English.

FLURINA ROTHENBERGER
Flurina Rothenberger, born 1977, was raised in Zuénoula, Côte d’Ivoire. Her photographs across different African countries focus on the expanding urban landscape, often located in some of the fastest growing economies in the world, and the people that move within it. Her work is published with Edition Patrick Frey. She is is the Co-founder of Klaym an independent collective – founded in 2015 – dedicated to support, mentor and publish the work of photographers in African countries. Rothenberger holds a degree in photography from the University of Arts Zurich and is a regular lecturer of Photography at Vevey School of Photography / CEPV and F+F School of Arts and Design Zurich. Flurina Rothenberger lives in Johannesburg, SA. 


ANNA-ALIX KOFFI
Anna-Alix Koffi was born in Abidjan and raised in Paris. As creative director and photo editor she founded and self published the photobook OFF THE WALL CULTURES PHOTO in 2013, a collection of 10 journals about photography. The purpose: to publish very young talents mixing their work with the archives of established photographers. Each issue’s launch came with an exhibition (Arles, Le Bon Marché, Fotofever, private companies and law firms..) to continue the promotion of the artists published. Since 2016, Koffi created and produced WOMAN PAPER: magazines for fairs and festivals in 2016 (Arles, Visa, Paris Photo, Fiac!, 1/54). Since then, Anna-Alix has multiplied projects related to photography between France and the African continent and is now working on SOMETHING WE AFRICAS GOT, her journal about arts and critical thinking from Africa and the black world. Anna-Alix Koffi lives and works in Paris.

BOOK SLOT

We are looking forward to presenting another book project in the second part of the evening.
JENS SCHWARZ will continue our conversation about photo books with his book dummy THEMMUNS, which was already presented in Arles. THEMMUNS is a photo project about youth in Northern Ireland. Following the UK Brexit referendum in 2016, Northern Ireland will have to leave the European Union in 2019 in the event of the Brexit, despite the majority of citizens voting in favor of it. Local Protestant loyalists mostly supported Brexit, while the other group of the mainly Catholic Republicans opposed it. With his project, Schwarz accompanies young people from both confessional groups in everyday situations and examines their respective needs, social environments and lifestyles. In his work he is concerned with a sensitive view of a complex social structure and the search of a young generation for identity.

Show & Tell

Furthermore, two works from our last Open Calls will be presented during the SHOW & TELL. We are looking forward to a presentation of Jörg Gläscher and Sonja Trabandt.

We already invite you to submit your own books and works for upcoming FOTOTREFF events now. We would like to put together an exciting program, like at the last photo meetings. As always, the same rule applies: unfinished work offers potential for discourse and so we prefer projects that are still in process. Please contact us at:
