EMOP Arendt Award 2017 - And the winner is…


Samuel Gratacap is the winner of the European Month of Photography Arendt Award within the framework of the European Month of Photography (EMOP).

The European Month of Photography

The European Month of Photography (EMOP) is a photography biennial founded in 2006. It takes place in eight European capitals (Athens, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Luxembourg, Paris and Vienna). In Luxembourg, the 6th European Month of Photography has the enigmatic title Looking for the clouds, and boasts 24 exhibitions in 21 locations.

Observing the movement of the clouds or the flight of birds has traditionally been a way of predicting the future. Looking for the clouds refers to the anxiety of those who scan the sky, haunted by drones and other machines designed for surveillance or destruction, but it also hints at the mingled hopes and fears of those who are searching for a better life, migrants especially. 

EMOP Arendt Award

Every two years, Arendt & Medernach presents the Arendt Award to one of the artists featured in the European Month of Photography. 

Five artists were chosen from among the emerging artists selected for the Looking for the clouds exhibition project launched by the eight EMOP partner cities: Samuel Gratacap, Jure Kastelic, Daniel Mayrit, Aida Silvestri and Panos Tsagaris.

The works of the artists will be exhibited in the gallery of Arendt House, and the winner will receive the European Month of Photography Arendt Award.
