The third edition of the BERLIN PHOTO WEEK (BPW) photography festival opens on 26 August 2021. BPW will be welcoming visitors to the multifaceted venue of ARENA Berlin until 29 August. In accordance with the applicable coronavirus regulations, the festival will once again celebrate the medium of photography in all its forms, bring it to life, and discuss relevant topics. For photography enthusiasts, photo professionals, and newcomers alike - there will be plenty of excitement on offer for everyone.
A central highlight of the festival is the Funplace, which already enjoyed great popularity in 2019. Presenting the latest developments from the imaging industry in a playful way, it invites visitors to experience and try out new photographic techniques in walk-in installations, photographic playgrounds, and live photo shoots. Outside the hall, the program will be complemented by a food market, lounge areas, and fun stops around the beloved Badeschiff. The vision of this year's BERLIN PHOTO WEEK can also be feit and experienced in front of the spacious ARENA complex.
"BERLIN PHOTO WEEK has established itself as a new charismatic event format and cultural highlight that reaches far beyond the borders of Berlin. Despite the particular challenges we face this year, I am delighted to be part of this movement," says AnnaMaria Seifert, BPW Chief Operating Officer.
Berlin Photo Week is a conceptually and economically independent project that can be seen and experienced throughout Berlin, featuring a central creative location with satellite events. The founding team of the innovative event format BERLIN PHOTO WEEK joined forces with new strategic partners, Messe Berlin GmbH and IMH Imaging Media House GmbH & Co. KG, to stage the third edition in 2021 and to further develop the photography festival.
