Zuzanna thinks...about this blog

Have been away (Houston -FotoFest) last week. So I am really surprised about a sudden boom of exchange.
To the blog idea - I do not want to sound pesimistic but it will only work if there is somebody as Pierre and Thomas willing to make it live. I would not expect everybody of us to contribute because it has never happened before - and coming back from the Festival of Light meeting (another network) I can only that say we are not the only proof that an active involvement of a majority is not realistic. I am personally out of breath fullfilling only our long-term tasks.
I support the idea of having an exciting, flashy ... whatever presentation on internet, but first I do not have an idea how it should look like and second I cannot promise I will contribute regularly - there is already a website I have to update once a month - this is just what I can manage to do.
What I am trying to say that our network, just as any other such network, is destined to either have somebody eager to do it or we have to accept that we are only able to run a website that can be changed and updated only a few times a year.

I am sorry particularly for Pierre and Thomas who seem really excited about these kind of gadgets (you can see their eyes sparkling - just like some years ago in front of Xmas tree). This is just to say that I am not able to keep up with you in this. Now we have two options - an almost dead website and a blog a bit more alive. Can we look at it realistic next meeting and say honestly what we are all able to support?

Catalogue of the 2006 edition

Catalogue published in 2006 by Contrasto Editore ( Rome ) and the European Month of photography.The catalogue has 160 pages and presents the work of 35 European photographers. Text in English and booklets in French, German, Italian and Slovak. Catalogue designed by A|Part Luxembourg. The European Month of Photography is sponsored by Alcatel.

Berlin is hosting the next meeting

Berlin will host the next meeting of the Emop team where final decisions will be made concerning the concept of the main exhibition ( Mutations 2 ), the catalogue, DVD and Web site. Unfortunately, Rome can not attend because of a very tight schedule. We will try to set up web conferencing to allow Anna or Emiliano to take part in the discussions. Steps were taken to speed up decision making; we all are aware that international collaboration need to adapt strategies to make things move on.

EMOP 2008/09 meeting in Bratislava

Members of the emop team met this time in Bratislava at the House of photography. All cities were present except Rome. Anna Gianesini could not come for personnal reasons. From Paris there was this time a new curator - Jean-Luc Soret- who is going to be in charge of the Paris exhibition at the Maison européenne de la photographie. From Moscow there was Ekaterina Kondradina in replacement of Olga Sviblova. The first day was quite succesfull in achieving some important agreements in money matters. We also heard that our main sponsor is going to maintain the price (Alcatel price for photography ) and it is going to be decided in Paris but announced in Berlin.
