Caochangdi Photospring ; Arles in Beijing
We are pleased to announce the launch of the first annual Caochangdi PhotoSpring on April 17th, 2010. The Caochangdi PhotoSpring is working in a three-year partnership with "Les Rencontres d'Arles" Photography Festival. This will be the very first time that Arles' programs will be shown outside of France.
For the past forty years, "Les Rencontres d'Arles" has been the meeting point of photography artists, professionals, and amateurs alike, who come to the southern French city to discover the new talents of photography and rediscover its celebrated masters.

In Luzia Simons work, the floral still life takes on a multi-layered cultural and socio-political statement. For one, the artist studies the history of the tulip, which became an important symbol of identification in both the Orient and the Occident. Taken from this historical context, the tulip becomes a metaphor for cross-cultural identity, social mobility and globalization for Luzia Simons.
Today many people encounter life similar to how the tulip came to Europe from Asia, changed through cultivation, and then returned in a new form: they travel, change and are rooted in more than one place at the same time. This results ...
Fototagetrier 2010: LEBEN elementarConceptual background:
The non-profit organisation Kulturverein Bild und Kunst eV Trier is proud to announce that the first edition of the fototagetrier, the Trier Photo Days, will be held in 2010. The festival, which was conceived as a triennial event, will invest various museums and exhibition spaces in the city of Trier.
