About Der Greif
Der Greif is a project for contemporary photography and literature with a focus on photography. It addresses itself to people with an affinity for image and text.
Der Greif is a print-magazine, online-platform, curatorial team and joint project for and with photographers and authors from all over the world.
The artistic core and root of the project is the printed and ad-free magazine. It shows the works of photographers and authors of different origins in a holistic piece of art.
The website is an exhibition-, communication-, and information-platform for participants and anyone interested. It contains information about the magazine, published artists and supporters, an online-shop, as well as a blog. Participating artists are presented in artist-features and have the opportunity to post on the blog.
Felix von Scheffer and Simon Karlstetter founded the magazine Der Greif in July 2008.
At the moment, the editorial team consists of Simon Karlstetter, Leon Kirchlechner and Matthias Lohscheidt. Claudio Ricci is concerned with issues as economics, calculation and strategy. Florian Kreier is consulting the team, and joining in when working on new issues. Together, they constantly develop concept and content of the magazine.
The team is also giving workshops and lectures about their way of curating, editing and working between digital and analog worlds.
