is an international network of artists dedicated to the investigation of photographic practice. Through a range of artistic, critical and curatorial projects, Time to meet is interested in the exploration of the medium of photography and its attendant issues of representation, objectivity and authenticity. These projects may include, but are not limited to the use of photography as an artistic medium itself. Our intention is to regularly bring together various practitioners in different disciplines as part of Time to meet's commitment to photographic discourse and debate. We feel that this collaborative, nomadic approach is necessary to encourage and inject new ideas and contexts into the practice. A free and open exchange of positions is imperative in Time to meet's continuing adaptability to a progressive and ever-shifting medium.


Time to Meet was established in 2006, in the context of the exhibition "Pigeons on the Balcony invites guests" at P/////AKT, platform for contemporary art in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The second event entitled "Wie sieht’s denn hier aus?" took place at Forum für Kunst und Architektur in Essen, Germany in 2007. In 2009 Time to Meet was run from Antwerp, Belgium, bringing together project proposals and organizing small events, leading up to "Sugary Photographs with Tricks, Poses and Effects – A Festival on Photography" in March 2010. The festival took place in various locations in Antwerp, including FotoMuseum and NICC. In 2011Time to Meet was invited by the Flemish Cultural Center in Amsterdam ‚De Brakke Grond’ to host a 4 day festival about the embrace between photography and performance. The festival brought together over forty artists in a lively program of performance, screenings and discussions, alongside an extensive exhibition throughout the entirety of de Brakke Grond.
