Unglaublich – Incredibile. Sensationalism, Document, Reality

2011 was the year of Fotodoks premiers: with Italy we invited our first guest country. The group exhibition was presented at the Münchner Stadtmuseum for the first time and the festival centre with a bookstand by the Hamburg Deichtorhallen moved into the art space MaximiliansForum. Unbelievable and new as well were the first festival catalogue and cooperations with MAGNUM Photos and the documentary film festival DOK.fest. The exhibition UNGLAUBLICH – Incredibile. Sensationalism, Document, Reality focused on the tension between credibility and sensation, and raised the question how convincing documentary photography is today, moving between information, infotainment and illustration.
