“Germany's most prestigious competition for young photography”- Der Spiegel

Every year “gute aussichten” presents a singular and extensive survey of the style and the content of the portfolio of young German photographers. This year the exhibition features works by Aras Gökten, Lars Hübner, Felix Hüffelmann, Kyung-Nyu Hyun, Kolja Linowitzki, Jewgeni Roppel, Gregor Schmidt, Kamil Sobolewski uns Maja Wirkus.

In the twelfth year of “gute aussichten” selected the nine-member jury nine works, which questioned our conception of the world radically: Quo-vadis, world? - Reflection and utopia.

The big question noticeable in all angles of the world, where the journey goes, is in this year the basic tone, in which all the works of the nine “gute aussichten” winners 2015/2016 swings. The so polyphonic individual melodies arise nevertheless a concert, which follows in individual ramifications the fundamental question: How does it continue, world? The well-known Topos “panta rhei” (engl. everything flows) opposes the winners of this year concrete considerations and projects.

During the opening of the exhibition an award ceremony will be organized for the winner of the photo competition on the topic of nature , an initiative of the Goethe-Institut Cyprus as part of the interactive exhibition Rethinking – Learning from Nature, which was hosted by the Goethe-Institut on January 2016.
