The International Photobiennial Ostend combines various indoor exhibitions on conceptual and contemporary photography with a series of high-profile interventions in the city. The route with work by more than thirty leading (inter)national photographers runs from Fort Napoleon to Mu.ZEE. As a theme, curator Stephane Verheye chose '(IN)FLUENCE', focusing on the connection with other art forms. Think sculpture, film, religion or painting that are a source of inspiration for the beautiful contemporary and conceptual work of the art photographers. Each photographic work in the International Photobiennale Ostend will reflect that theme in a unique, contemporary and idiosyncratic way.
