Every two years the Centre for Fine Arts organises the Summer of Photography, an international biennale that focuses on photography and related media. Not only does the festival provide the opportunity to discovery modern-day photography, it also looks forward to the future of the image in our culture. Various Belgian and European exhibitions and photography and media museums have been working together to create a themed programme that explores the cultural exchange between the European member states and places it in a global context. The result is a varied programme of exhibitions and related events, with talks, a symposium, and a portfolio day, with curators, photographers, and related specialists in different fields offering us an insight into their work and their vision.
In a variety of locations in Belgium, Summer of Photography thus creates a lively forum and platform for specialists, amateurs, and anyone with an interest in photography. Through the combined forces of its partners, this biennale promotes photography as a medium, as well as the international reputation of the Belgian photography world.
