Photon Association was established in 2003 in order to present and promote artists and their practices from the Central and especially Southeast Europe, who are in particular active in the field of contemporary photography and artists’ moving image.
A special attention is paid to the international activities of Photon. Therefore the organisation has established close professional ties with some of the leading European photo institutions and festivals in order to create and maintain a strong international collaborative programme.
In 2013 Photon has expanded its activities abroad and started a gallery space in Vienna (Galerie Photon, Absberggasse 27/9, 1100 Vienna).
In terms of international activities, special mention should be made of the establishment of Photonic Moments – Month of Photography festival of contemporary photography (first edition have taken place in 2005). In 2011 Photonic Moments became a member of European Month of Photography network (EMoP). In past three editions Photonic Moments encompassed a biannually average of thirty exhibitions as well as related events, such as symposium entitled Forum: Talks on Contemporary Photography.
In 2006 we have introduced an additional program, consisting of presentation of contemporary video art. Video in progress is a video programme, which has been organized in the collaboration with the Kolektiva group since 2006.
