Participate in Urban Space
Rio de Janeiro - Berlin

Urban Space is part of the biannual Brazilian photography festival FotoRio, taking place in Rio de Janeiro in July 2007. Project curators will select 25 artists to participate in the 2007 edition of FotoRio.

On 20 July 2007, selected images from these artists will be projected at the festival location Oi Futuro - a landmark cultural institute in Rio de Janeiro. Simultaneous with the projections in Brazil, the same selection will be projected in the Berlin gallery, New Life Shop.

Urban Space invites submissions from artists working with issues regarding the urban environment, such as anonymity, community, displacement, informal architectures and gentrification.

Traditional documentary photography as well as urban portraits, architectonic interventions, actions and documentation of street art projects, are to be considered for selection.

Urban Space will open on Fri 20 Jul 2007, at 8pm in Rio and Berlin (both local time).
