Every other year BOZAR works with various partner institutions to organise the Summer of Photography, an international biennale for photography and lens-based media with a varied exhibition trail. In doing so, the Summerof Photography creates, across multiple locations in Brussels, aliving forum for connoisseurs, enthusiasts and a wider public with an interest in photography.  Joining forces with partnering venues, the biennale aims to consolidate Belgium’s place as a major local and international platform for photography.

The central theme of the seventh edition of the photographybiennale Summer of Photography is ‘revolt’, in response to the 50th anniversary of May ’68. The 2018 edition of Summer of Photography focuses on this crucial decade and will evaluate the legacy of the protest movements. Inspired by the overarching theme, the partners also present a range of exhibitions, meetings and debates. This will create a trailacross Brussels, with events approaching the theme from a variety of angles.
