DESCRIPTION
The international photography triennial RAY Fotografieprojekte Frankfurt/RheinMain returns between 24 May and 9 September 2018 to present outstanding contemporary photography and related media at over ten venues in Frankfurt and the surrounding region. The Festival hub is based at the MMK 3 in Frankfurt.


For the first time, RAY will open with a Festival Kick-off: From 24 to 27 May photography fans, international experts of the medium as well as artists are invited to Frankfurt to explore the medium of photography and topics surrounding the RAY 2018 theme EXTREME. With over fifteen partners and a variety of public events RAY 2018 once again offers a summer of intriguing photographic highlights.

RAY 2018 FESTIVAL KICK-OFF
For the first time, RAY 2018 launches with a versatile four-day festival programme from 24 to 27 May 2018. With talks and panel discussions artists, renowned academics and experts of different fields jointly investigate the phenomenon of the extreme from different perspectives. Together they discuss themes and artistic examples in order to generate sustainable impulses for art practitioners, cultural institutions, and the general public.

The festival start will be hosted at the MMK 3 venue of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main. During the festival kick-off RAY 2018 will also offer a diverse education programme that invites children, teenagers and adults to explore the photographic medium and aspects of the triennial theme while enabling participation on different levels.

RAY MASTER CLASS
RAY 2018 is organising the premiere of a Master Class with the artist Arno Rafael Minkkinen. Rafael Minkkinen in collaboration with students of the regional art academies, will be presenting an exhibition at the festival hub, MMK 3. With this, RAY fosters an exchange between the regional art academies and international artists in the field of photography and offers young artists a public platform. The Master Class is made possible by the support of Olympus and the Crespo Foundation.

RAY JUNIOR
Additionally, RAY 2018 continues its youth proramme RAY JUNIOR that will offer workshops for schools in the Rhine/Main region. The produced outcomes will be published in a catalogue produced in collaboration with the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain.

RAY 2018 EXTREME
Geographic and cultural borders have become blurred due to the advancing technological possibilities and suggest a new global togetherness: We consume the same products, we use the same communication channels and implement the same image vocabulary within the social media. But at the same time, the ideological positions harden.

Through a multitude of correlating exhibitions, the selected artists reflect upon these gaping differences, social transformation, concepts of identity, and aesthetic tendencies in the twenty-first century. Together the curatorial team has developed five exhibitions in which the selected artists examine different aspects of extremeness. The exhibitions are on view between 24 May and 9 September in Frankfurt and throughout the region. These include:

EXTREME. SELF

EXTREME. TERRITORIES

EXTREME. ENVIRONMENTS

EXTREME. NOMADS

EXTREME. BODIES
