About Circulation(s) Festival

Since its first edition in 2011, Circulation(s) Festival of Young European Photography has been held in the “Parc de Bagatelle”, in Paris.

Thanks to Fabienne Giboudeaux support, (Deputy Mayor in charge of the green spaces and to Sylvie Depondt and Christophe Chaumont at the Environment and Green spaces Direction (DEVE), the Festival has evolved into a major event in the French photo industry.

With 3 consecutive years of success and a growing recognition coming from the audience and the media, the Circulation(s) festival is gaining momentum by setting up the exhibition at the “CENTQUATRE-PARIS”, its new partner. This center located within Paris, recognized for its qualitative cultural program will give the festival a great exposure and a chance to be visited by a wide audience.

For the fourth year, the Circulation(s) festival is the only one focusing on Young European Photography by exhibiting a photographic dialogue about Europe.

Aiming at scouting and developing talents coming from the young European photographic scene, the festival, organized by Fetart, (a non-profit organization created in 2005), also wishes to connect and federate with partners promoting the same ambition: helping the young photographers to step into the professional market and exhibit an innovative contemporary artistic production.

Considering the fact that there wasn’t any photographic event entirely dedicated to the young European photography anywhere in France, Fetart decided to organize this festival in 2011 as an extension to its non-profit actions made since 2005 in order to promote young talents in photography throughout Europe.

Circulation(s) other ambition is to network with other European structures dedicated to promote the young photography and communicate about initiatives made by European curators, gallery, festivals, collectives, schools of photography and editors.

This festival stands out for its open mindedness and its pan-European as well as its prospective vision about contemporary innovation and creation.
