Meeting in Vienna

For the third time in a little more than a year Vienna hosted on January 8th and 9th one of the formal meetings of EMoP. It was held in the exhibition rooms of the MUSA which hosted the "distURBANces" exhibition and just closed. All seven members were present and discussed the new projects for the year to come. With new memberships pending, discussions were mainly about how to maintain a high level of activity in hard times. An exhibition project by Bratislava on propaganda imagery under communism and fascism as well as an ongoing project by the Vienna MUSA on the Sarajevo assassination which led to the first World War in 1914 were the basis of discussion around a contemporary photography exhibition inspired by these topics. Members decided to meet again in Paris by end of February as well as in Luxembourg on April 24th for the venue of the "distURBANces" exhibitions at the Musée national d'histoire et d'art in Luxembourg. This meeting also decided on the need to give legal existence to the group which meets regularly since 2004.
