DER GREIF is an award-winning contemporary photography organization. Through crowdsourcing, DER GREIF brings together diverse voices and provides a platform and visibility for a range of practitioners and their works. Since 2008, DER GREIF has engaged with topics like changing authorship perceptions, image de- and re-contextualization, appropriation, and artistic approaches to photographic archives and remix culture.

DER GREIF's publications demonstrate how pairings of images by different authors can generate new meanings. DER GREIF explores the creation, distribution, and reception of images – in print, on screens, and in exhibitions. The organization reflects on and questions the role of images: how we construct and perceive our environment and our respective responsibilities within it.

Since issue #11, DER GREIF has been guest-edited by artists Jason Fulford, Broomberg & Chanarin, Penelope Umbrico, Sylvie Fleury and Shirin Neshat.

DER GREIF has worked with institutions such as FOAM, Aperture Foundation, C/O Berlin, Fotomuseum Winterthur and published works from about 3.000 photographers, artists and authors in printed publications as well as online.


The events in Munich and Berlin will accompany our Photography Online Only Auction from 19 through 28 January 2024. Click here for further information.
