After Rethinking Nature (2021) and Rethinking Identity ( 2023 ) the curatorial team of EMOP chose the theme of Rethinking Photography for 2025 in order to show the importance of this current topic in the context of contemporary photography. More than ever, the role of photography in the media and its dissemination in social networks questions its very identity..
The EMOP Arendt Award is a prestigious award created in 2013 for emerging visual artists with strong artistic skills and a developing photographic practice. The prize is worth € 6,000 and is sponsored by the Luxembourg law firm Arendt. The winner will be announced in April 2023 at the Arendt House in Luxembourg during the European Month of Photography in Luxembourg, where all nominated artists will be exhibited and invited to attend the exhibition and award ceremony. Additionally, a publication with monographic zines will be published.
