Photo Kathmandu 2016

Photo.circle and its partners are gearing the second edition of Photo Kathmandu, Nepal’s only international photography festival, to be held between October, 21st and November, 3rd 2016. The festival attempts to create connections between the city, its people, its history, and its dreams and aspirations. It serves as an alternative platform for conversations between visual storytellers and local audiences. Photo Kathmandu also seeks to actively promotes Nepal as a vibrant cultural destination, and support the recovery of tourism, an industry that has been severely affected by the earthquakes of 2015, yet still employs millions of Nepalis.

Photo Kathmandu 2016 will host exhibitions, slide-shows, artist talks, workshops and a mixed-media residency that will bring artists together to respond to and converse with the historic city of Patan, where the festival will be anchored.

The month-long artist residency with Bangladeshi artist and curator Mabubur Rahman, co-founder of Britto Art Trust, will invite six artists of varying disciplines to live and work together in Patan for four weeks and explore intersections between photography, sound, video, writing, performance, poetry and other media. The residency will encourage artists to experiment, collaborate and respond to each other and the city of Patan, creating a site-specific body of work that will be exhibited during the main exhibition program of Photo Kathmandu 2016.

While the first edition of Photo Kathmandu was centered on Nepal, this year’s festival will have a broader scope, with about a dozen print exhibitions from across Asia. The festival has chosen to go without a theme this year, but will feature works that speak to ideas of resilience and revival. 2016 marks 20 years since the start of the Maoist rebellion in Nepal. This war and its aftermath have left deep scars on many Nepali lives, and still affect the country at large. Last year, Nepal was hit by several horrific earthquakes which killed over 8000 people and left over 800,000 families homeless. Photo Kathmandu 2016 will examine how the human spirit overcomes conflict, disasters or personal challenges, and will present stories of survival and triumph from around Asia to the alley-ways of Patan.

Until September 15th, 2016 is possible to submit photographic and multimedia work focusing on labour migration in/from/to Asia. Selected works will be featured in a slideshow series on the theme of Moving Asia during Photo Kathmandu 2016. Learn more at www.photoktm.com/2016/slideshow.
