The medium of photography has been undergoing radical transformation for some years now. Extensive digitalisation, new technology and extended channels of distribution are changing the way professional photographers and image editors work, as well as the approach taken by artists and amateurs. In the coming months, C/O Berlin, together with photographers, artists and experts, will highlight the fundamental, complex development that is redefining our entire visual culture. The series of events "In Transition" includes workshops, lectures, discussions and also tours to different locations in Berlin.
In March 2013 the lights went out for C/O Berlin in the legendary Postfuhramt in Berlin-Mitte. In Autumn 2014 the internationally renowned art venue will turn the lights back on in a new location -- Amerika Haus in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Amerika Haus is currently being converted and renovated according to the regulations for listed buildings. C/O Berlin is financing the interior fittings including air-conditioning and safety features, floor covering, exhibition walls, display cabinets and lighting. www.startnext.de/co-berlin
