Independent Photo
Festival Vienna

OFF GRID’s mission is to bring together Vienna’s vibrant off photography scene and present it in the form of an annually recurring festival. We aim to reflect its relevance as an important decentralized cultural space and to make it visible and accessible for the city’s residents.

In cooperation with off-spaces, studios, and galleries in the districts, exhibitions will be shown with works by artists from the extended field of photographic art that display current relevance and artistic qualities in the sense of a free position.

For 2021 we are planning the second edition of the festival. In particular, we want to address the immediate neighborhood of the festival headquarters at GREEN DOOR artists space & gallery and invite to an intercultural art experience.

The festival was founded by Paul Pibernig and Sebastian Gansrigler and took place for the first time in October 2020. With the festival headquarters at gallery Die Schöne in the 16th district and 4 partner locations in the city, we were able to showcase over 45 artists in various exhibitions.
