Thessaloniki PhotoBiennale

The Thessaloniki PhotoBiennale returns this October, with a program that boasts 19 exhibitions featuring as many as 94 photographers from 18 countries.

The main exhibition, which is presented in two sections at the MOMus-Thessaloniki Museum of Photography and the MOMus-Experimental Center for the Arts, is titled “The Real and the Record.” Curated by Yorgos Prinos and Katerina Stathopoulou, 25 photographers local and international photographers explore the theme of truth in the modern world from the aspects of of fake news and information overload from 24-hour media outlets.

“In order to get to the core of distinguishing reality, one must break through the information clutter and visual noise that surrounds us. At a time when political and media rhetoric is filled with irrational claims, when power is abused in the hands of those who hold it, and when knowledge is being seen less as a means of understanding and more as an interference that can be disregarded if it stands in the way of wishful thinking, we need to unveil and infiltrate the Real,” reads the exhibition description.

The Biennale also presents another four exciting group exhibitions and fourteen solo exhibitions by local photographers as well as photographers from the US, France, Denmark and Slovenia, displayed at venues throughout the city.

You can read about all the exhibitions  and venues, and find opening hours here.

Note that visitors at all of the exhibitions must present either a EU Digital COVID Certificate, a certificate of complete vaccination completed at least 14 days before prior to their visit, a valid certificate of recovery, or the results of a rapid test taken within the previous 48 hours, as well as their ID to be checked against their certificates.
