WELCOME TO RAW 2023
RAW took place for the first time in autumn 2016. In the meantime, the Worpswede Festival for Contemporary Photography and Photo Art has become an event of nationwide significance. In various exhibitions, internationally renowned photo artists as well as up-and-coming talents of the photo scene are shown under a common theme.
The exhibition programme is accompanied by a diverse programme of events, including artist talks, lectures, films, discussions and symposia.
„RAW“ goes back to an initiative by the two photographers Jürgen Strasser and Rüdiger Lubricht and will be organised for the first time by RAW Projektbüro gemeinnützige UG in 2023.
The fourth edition of RAW in spring 2023 will take on the world at the turning point under the title „Turning Point. Turning World“, the fourth edition of RAW in spring 2023 focuses on the world at the turning point and presents artists whose work intensively explores the social, political and ecological narratives and their reception in our world. It thus takes on the mission of not staging art as an end in itself, but using it as a means of questioning reality.
The central exhibitions will again be realised in the four houses of the Worpswede Museum Association.
