Vienna meeting: Is Emop to continue ?

Most important meeting in Vienna on February 2nd and 3d 2011 to assess the situation. Politics interfere in Moscow ( a new mayor ) and Rome ( severe budget cuts in cultural affairs )  and this will probably push out these two cities. During the meeting the remaining five ( Berlin, Bratislava, Paris, Vienna and Luxembourg ) expressed their intention to continue working together. The subject for the next exhibition was already chosen : how does reality and fiction coexist in photography ?
New membership was also discussed. Budapest, Ljubljana and London had their representatives introduced to the board and gave interesting insights into their photo festivals. A charter will be worked out.
