For the fourth time, the f² Fotofestival transforms the city of Dortmund into a meeting place for the photography scene: From June 1 to 11, 16 exhibitions and an extensive supporting program invite visitors to exchange ideas on this year's festival theme #Globalität. The starting signal falls on 01 June at 19:00 clock in the Kulturort Depot, where with POINT OF and UTOPIA the exhibition round is opened. The patron of the festival is Dortmund's Lord Mayor Thomas Westphal.
Claudia Schenk, Managing Director of the Depot: "The last festival edition in 2021 still took place in the midst of the pandemic and a large part of the supporting program could not take place at all or only online. Therefore, this year we are particularly looking forward to the personal encounter on site."
There will be opportunities for talks and discussions, lectures, guided tours, workshops and parties - the festival has a lot to offer in addition to 16 exhibitions spread throughout the city center. Professionals as well as up-and-coming young artists will have their chance. Until the start of the festival, interested parties can get an overview of the diverse offerings on the website.
On the two festival weekends (SA 03. / SO 04.06. and SA 10. / SO 11.06.2023) all exhibitions are open in parallel from 11:00 to 18:00 and invite you to culture hopping. Admission to all exhibitions within the f² Fotofestival is free.
