.tiff 2023 - Emerging Belgian Photography
Every year, FOMU selects ten promising artists and photographers with a Belgian connection. They are taken on a one-year journey where they are given several opportunities to present their work to an international professional audience. In addition, FOMU creates the magazine and group exhibition .tiff with them.
.tiff 2023 presents work by Kwabena Sekyi Appiah-Nti, Emilio Azevedo, Eva Maria Bouillon, Luna Mahoux, Fabrice Schneider, Sarah Stone, Brahim Tall, Kristof Thomas, Oxiea Villamonte and Yao Yuan.
In the same way that “Belgian photography” cannot be categorised, .tiff does not fall under one heading. It functions as an overview of the diversity and energy of the Belgian photography scene.
This 11th edition of .tiff marks a new beginning, with a fresh design of the magazine and twist in the selection process. For the first time this year we solicited the expertise from three external jurors to select the final ten. Together with Sorana Munsya (independent curator), Anna Planas (artistic director of Paris Photo) and Max Pinckers (.tiff alumnus and artist) we carefully curated a diverse group of participants.
.tiff is part of FUTURES, a partnership between FOMU and a growing number of European organisations.
.tiff magazine is for sale at the FOMU shop for € 7, from 23 June 2023.
