16th IN OUT Festival

We invite individuals engaged in visual art and film to participate in the open international competition being held as part of the 16th IN OUT Festival.
IN OUT Festival is a cyclical project of the Laznia Center for Contemporary Art organized since 2005. In 2024, CCA Laznia intends to dedicate its 16th edition to the theme of photography. The aim of this edition of the Festival is to look at what photography is for visual artists, and what video and films are for artists working with photography. How is the function of photography changing in the field impacted by new media? Does and how does photography function in juxtaposition with other media? The Festival includes an open, international competition for short experimental forms. The competition is in two stages, artists from Poland and abroad selected in the first stage are invited to the Festival in Gdansk, and their works are presented during the reviews.
