»Shaping Cohesion – Neighbourly Relations in Europe«

A Franco-Polish-German Photo Competition by the Genshagen Foundation

In 2020, the Genshagen Foundation is announcing a Franco-Polish-German photo competition on the topic of “Shaping Cohesion – Neighbourly Relations in Europe“. Photographers and students of photography between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five from Germany, France, and Poland are invited to focus on the topic of neighbourliness and to present their individual perspectives. Photo series (ranging from six to twelve images) can be submitted to the Genshagen Foundation until 30 September 2020, on the topic of “Shaping Cohesion – Neighbourly Relations in Europe”.

Over the coming two years, the Genshagen Foundation will focus on “Shaping Cohesion – Neighbourly Relations in Europe.” Various projects will investigate how neighbourliness can be improved as a skill throughout Europe, how ties between individual neighbours can be fostered, and how cohesion across societies can be permanently developed. Here, we are concerned with a broader concept of neighbourliness and neighbourhood, which not alone includes nation-states as well as regions and cities, but also social groups and individuals within a European context.

What does it mean to be neighbours? How do photographers from France, Poland and Germany view the topic of neighbourliness? How has globalization and digitization changed the nature and practice of neighbourliness? What role does it play in the European integration process? Moreover, in recent times, the outbreak of the corona pandemic has raised further questions on the topic of neighbourliness and cohesion, be it at the individual, social, or European level. However, these questions only cover part of the immense range of the topic of neighbourliness and neighbourly relations. The trilateral photo competition of the Genshagen Foundation calls on photographers from France; Poland and Germany to find their subjects in this context, to set priorities and to design their thematic field.

This photo competition will be advertised in Germany, France and Poland. Applicants must submit a coherent series from six to twelve photos with a corresponding text. Photo series dating from 2019 and 2020 will be accepted for review. Applications can be written in French, Polish or German.
