Dušan Kochol founded and now directs and curates a festival of contemporary photography OFF Bratislava (founded in 2010) and a gallery of contemporary photography FOG Bratislava (founded in 2020). The mission of the festival is to provide a large-scale platform for the presentation and promotion of fresh talents in the field of photography and new media. The focus of the gallery is centred on the promotion, valuation and sale of contemporary artworks created by a remarkable community of artists in the field of photography and new media.
“As a director and curator of the festival OFF Bratislava and the gallery FOG Bratislava, I am always looking for new or emerging photographic talents for possible future collaborations.”

In 2016 he was presented with the Photographer of the Year award for the significant contribution to the quality, development and promotion of Slovak photography at home and abroad and in 2017 Kochol became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
