An introduction to »PiB – Photography in Berlin«

PiB – Photography in Berlin

Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Julia, and i’m excited to be this month’s guest blogger for Hatje Cantz.

To begin with, i’d like to introduce my current project to you, »PiB – Photography in Berlin«, a bilingual (en/de) platform solely dedicated to fine art & documentary photography in Berlin.

With an art scene such versatile and vibrant as in Berlin, i was suprised to find out a couple of years ago that none of the existing art platforms put an emphasis on photography – so i decided to change that. Since its launch in spring 2015, PiB publishes a bi-monthly print guide, the PiB Guide, which presents a selection of photography exhibitions & events you shouldn’t miss in Berlin. Additionally, PiB’s Website and E-Newsletter keep you informed about new highlights on a daily/weekly basis.
Feel free to also follow PiB on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Just in case you were wondering why I don’t give credits to my team, there’s a simple reason: I’m doing everything myself. It’s not easy (at all), and so I’m grateful for all the support you might want to give me… (for example by sharing this platform with your friends, or by ordering an annual subscription of the PiB Guide?) ; )
I’m also open to media partnerships & collaborations, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have something in mind.

The current PiB Guide Nº16 Jan/Feb 2018 comprises 52 pages and is available in many galleries & photography institutions throughout Berlin, as well as by mail order. An annual subscription (or a gift subscription for a friend) with international shipping are also offered on PiB’s website.

Featured on the cover of this issue is Evelyn Hofer‘s solo show »Cities, Interiors, Still Lifes. Photographs 1962 – 1997« at Galerie Springer Berlin (Charlottenburg), on view until February 3, 2018.

The PiB Guide is deliberately published in a small format – currently as an A6 booklet – so it can function as a pocket guide & always accompany you around the city. It also includes a little map and public transportation details for each venue, so you can easily find your way around (even without a smartphone, imagine!)…

Being invited to contribute to this blog also gave me the impulse to finally launch a series of interviews i’ve had in mind for a while now, which will take a look behind the scenes and introduce protagonists & artists from Berlin’s photography scene on a more personal level.
I’m looking forward to publishing the first feature in the interview series »7 questions for…« shortly here on the Hatje Cantz fotoblog!
