MADE

BY

Fresh From Poland is an art platform created in 2014 out of the need to fill up the gap in publishing and promoting new Polish photography worldwide. Focused on exploring new trends and activities in contemporary photography organisation deliberately crosses the boundaries of the medium in its traditional meaning. Besides showcasing best examples of the photographic works platform looks into to the other art forms existing between traditional photography and disciplines such us: books, digital graphic, documentary, fashion and collage. Looking for new perspectives and introducing innovative approach Fresh From Poland aims to share works of young, yet not always well known artists with the wider, international audience and at the same time create opportunities of development.

In addition to daily online publications, platform expands their activity towards organising events, exhibitions, publishing books and zines.

Paper Beats Rock is a foundation and a DIY project dedicated to visual education. We are fascinated by zine culture, photobooks and all the people behind it. Our main goal is to gather, support, promote and aggregate works of artists from southeastern Europe. It’s our dream to create a comprehensive library of photographic publications. We have conducted numerous educational activities for various groups, constructed around the idea of storytelling, reading images, book binding, image editing and all things “photobooky”. Paper Beats Rock is also a publishing house – we were lucky enough to publish a few books of gifted young artists. Privately we are photographers, designers, and educators. We are a NGO formally registered in Poland.

Fotograf Magazine is a periodical that has been published in both Czech and English since 2002. Building on the magazine’s activities, Fotograf Gallery was opened in 2009 and, two years later, the first Fotograf Festival was held.

We foster the establishment of professional contacts, our members’ presence in Hungarian and international exhibitions and residencies, and we provide them with information and organizational support. The association also helps Hungarian and foreign curators and artists to get in contact with the young Hungarian art scene and to build collaborations.

Hardness&Blackness is an organisation focused on publishing and theoretical reflection on contemporary drawing in the international context.
