Good To Talk is a talk-festival about art – in the form of lectures, panel discussions, monologues, debates, spoken or sung, informative or performative. The festival offers a platform for communicating art outside established structures and focuses on the question of the future of art mediation. Furthermore, Good To Talk also allows people – whether they are familiar with the Berlin art scene or not – to gain first-hand insights into the art world from gallery owners, artists and others.

Seiichi Furuya awarded Austrian State Prize for Artistic Photography

Seiichi Furuya has been awarded the Austrian State Prize for Artistic Photography. The award, which has been given at irregular intervals since 1991, includes a monetary prize of 25,000 euros and is presented to an artist for an especially outstanding life’s work of national and international importance.
The three-member jury — Monika Faber, Walter Moser and Urs Stahel — explains: “Seiichi Furuya is one of a generation of Austrian auteur photographers that beginning in the 1970s developed impulses for the development of photography that had an impact domestically and beyond the country’s borders. In his frequent travels in Europe and Japan, Furuya created photographs that combine documentary strategies with autobiographical subjects in a unique way.” Read more.
