16 October – 23 November 2018

Photon Gallery is participating at this year’s edition of the City / Month of Design festival with the selection of photographs from 18 Southeast European countries (SEE region). The photographs are exhibited in pavilions assigned to individual countries and sit next to other creatives products or achievements in the fields like architecture, design and illustration. According to the slogan of the festival – “The creative strength, passion and exotica of Southeast Europe” – our curated selection is diverse, where each photograph expresses both national specificities of a given country, as well as a complex approach to portrait photography.


The selected artists are:

Jozsef Bartha (RO) / Eva Besleme (GR) / Vanja Bučan (SI) / Pablo Chiereghin (CZ) / Andrej Djerković (BiH) / Aldo Giannotti (IT) / Markus Guschelbauer (AT) / Ora Hasenfratz (HU) / Robert Jankuloski (MK) / Ľuboš Kotlár (SK) / Glorija Lizde (CRO) / Bojana Loizou (CY) / Katarina Marković (RS) / Edvina Meta (AL) / Duško Miljanić (MNE) / Petra Mrša (CRO) / Alexandru Pahomi (MD) / Alexander Valchev (BUL) / Nita Zeqiri (RKS).


The City / Month of Design’s aim is to represent the creative forces of the aforementioned region, that brings together 18 countries and 250 million people. It is delivered through the BIG SEE platform developing under the BIG umbrella, the centre for the creative economy of Southeast Europe. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘The New World’ which at its core represents the daring spirit of the region and the courageous individuals that embody the festival’s slogan.


The festival runs until 23 November and is located at the former printing press of Mladinska knjiga at Dunajska 123, Ljubljana.
