About Paradox

Paradox is a nonprofit organisation founded in 1993. We develop projects on contemporary issues with documentary authors: photographers, filmmakers, visual artists, writers and researchers.

Founded with the aim of stimulating the development of documentary photography, Paradox has initiated more than 60 unique productions that have travelled to some 120 venues worldwide. We organise symposia and produce exhibitions as well as audiovisual, digital and printed publications.

The recording of history as it unfolds and the interaction between the highly complex cultural, economic and technological facets of society are recurring areas of interest in both our thematic and monographic projects.
