eigenarten Interkulturelles Festival Hamburg

24 october to 3 november 2019

Photo competition

As the saying goes, "Clothes make the man." This is why human beings do not just wear clothes — they clean, mend, and wash them. Endless piles of clothes the world over are put out to dry and the clothesline, eigenarten's central motif, is just one place to do so.

To underscore the rich assortment of drying laundry and alternative techniques, eigenarten holds an annual photo competition entitled "Drying Clothes." A jury of experts chooses a series of photographs for an exhibition. The winning photo is also used as the festival's cover image.

Let your imagination run wild and keep your eyes open the next time you travel or go simply about the day.
We are already taking submissions for eigenarten 2019.
