Observing the movement of the clouds or the flight of birds has traditionally been a way of predicting the future. Looking for the clouds refers to the anxiety of those who scan the sky, haunted by drones and other machines for surveillance or destruction, but it also hints at the mingled hopes and fears of those who are searching for a better life, migrants especially.
The European Month of Photography was created in 2004 organised by the European House of Photography (Maison Européenne de la Photographie - MEP) in Paris and its director Jean-Luc Monterosso. It is a network of institutions dealing with photography located in eight European capitals (Athens, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana, Luxembourg, Paris, Vienna).
Every two years, Arendt & Medernach presents the Arendt Award to one of the artists featured in the European Month of Photography. Five artists were chosen from among the emerging artists selected for the Looking for the clouds exhibition project launched by the eight EMOP partner cities: Samuel Gratacap, Jure Kastelic, Daniel Mayrit, Aida Silvestri and Panos Tsagaris. The works of the artists will be exhibited in the gallery of Arendt House, and the winner will receive the European Month of Photography Arendt Award. The jury members are Miha Colner (Ljubljana), Berthold Ecker (Vienne), Jean-Luc Soret (Paris) and Manolis Moresopoulos (Athens) coordinated by Paul di Felice (Luxembourg), the exhibition curator.
