As a presentation institution FOTODOK presents artists with projects that vary in form: from mixed media to performance, from an installation to an intersection between still and moving image, from works produced through experimental printing techniques to screen-based presentations of digitally appropriated visuals.
What is important for FOTODOK within the variety of all these artistic modes are two backbone elements: projects have to address the nature of the photographic medium and engage with society.
