With the topic ME:WE Fotodoks 2017 illuminates, in dialogue with the partner country USA, the relationship between the individual and the collective. Documentary photographic positions show how social communities are shaped by external influences, such as politics or conflicts, and create the potential for a hopeful connection. The view is directed at what connects or separates people, opposition, diversity and solidarity, and the search for motifs that define attributions and identities in a complex time. Virtual participation is observed critically and influences of nationalism on society and the media are shown. In the same way, the personal behavior of photographers is discussed and the role they can play in social coexistence.


This year’s festival will take place from October 11-15 at a new location: The Lothringer13 Halle in Munich. Save the Date!
