Photon – Centre for Contemporary Photography was established in 2003 in order to present and promote the artists from the Central and especially Southeast Europe, who are in particular engaged in the field of contemporary art photography and art video. A special attention is paid to the international activity of the Photon. Therefore we have established program collaboration with some of the leading European photo institutions and festivals, Photon is also a member of EMoP.
In terms of international activity, special mention should be made of the establishment of Photonic Moments – Month of Photography (first edition in 2005).
We have introduced an additional program, consisting of presentation of contemporary video art. Video in progress is a video programme, which has been organized in the collaboration with the Kolektiva group since 2006.
In 2013 Photon has expanded its activities abroad and opened a gallery space in Vienna.
