With this blog we invited photographers to contribute photographs to the Antifoto-Archive. Each image should deal with the idea of ANTIFOTO, what they think ANTIFOTO, should be about and the attitude of a Visual Manifesto.
Everybody had to agree to us using the images for an event, which was held in cooperation with Markus Schaden during the Photoweekend in Düsseldorf in February 2013: On this weekend all images from this blog where printed and presented to the audience. They could edit their own Visual Manifesto which was then copied and stapled and added to the ANT!FOTO Manifesto Text-Issue. About 200 visitors came and about 100 unique copies where produces.
In the evening of Feb. 3rd there was also the opening of this years ANTIFOTO exhibition including a selection of Wilhelm Schürmann’s collection regarding various aspects of ANT!FOTO.
This blog is closed now but will still be online.
Thanks a lot to everybody who participated and made this project possible especially Markus Schaden and George Popov, the masters of editing and copying during a very busy weekend 2013.
