PEP is a platform aiming at promoting the work of new talents of photography, founded by Bénédicte Blondeau.

“Based on an open, transdisciplinary approach, art plays a central role at B-Part Am Gleisdreieck. It gives impetus, inspires, stimulates lateral thinking and reflection and in turn absorbs impulses and ideas. Permanent development and joint research, discussion and processing make the work on the “City of the Future” at this location a project of multiple authorship, to which art repeatedly provides valuable contributions and impulses. The cooperation with the Photographic Exploration Project on the topic of “Urban Challenges” addresses precisely this point. The city of tomorrow is not only a locally but also globally interesting question, as cities are increasingly facing new and important challenges with the steady growth of the urban population – be it social, ecological or economic. Our urban experience is constantly changing, and new questions arise every day. Through a joint call for entries by an internationally positioned and networked jury addressed to an international audience of artists, a wide variety of perspectives now connect with each other in the form of a photography exhibition at B-Part Exhibition.” (Text excerpt from the press release by courtesy of Rüdiger Lange & B-Part)
