Together with photographer Anne Ackermann, I curated an exhibition of @thejournal_collective at the F2 Fotofestival in Dortmund, Germany. We selected 10 artists from our collective, two from each world region, and displayed their intimate images on 2x3m banners in the public space. Each artist had a video edited by Ecuadorian photographer Michelle Gachet, giving more insights into their respective regions and art practices. 

Additionally we exhibited a collective video, which contains one image of each member of our collective (, edited by Colombian photographer Liliana Merizalde. 

Exhibited artists:
Ans Brys (Belgium), Daru Sulakauri (Georgia), Emily Schiffer (USA), Erica Canepa (Argentina), Fatma Fahmy (Egypt), María Gutiérrez (Argentina), Melissa Golden (USA), Natalie Grono (Australia), Nelly Ating (Nigeria), Yen Duong (Vietnam)

Mehr als 400 Fotografinnen aus 75 Ländern dokumentierten während der Pandemie für das globale Kollektiv »The Journal« ihre ganz persönlichen Geschichten. Wir zeigen eine Auswahl berührender Szenen.
