(english version only)

Intergalactica is a transnational project connecting artistic institutions, local communities and contemporary photographers across Europe, promoting three diverse ways of showcasing contemporary photography: the Photobook, the Exhibition and the Digital Platform.

The residency will take place during the month of January 2025 at XYZ Books in Lisbon, and will continue online, culminating in the production of a photobook published by XYZ Books and a custom-made digital platform developed in partnership with Fiebre and Bestalde Studio as part of the Intergalactica Project.

Open  to

Intergalactica Residency Call is open for emerging as well as established photographers and artists working with the medium of photography, from all galaxies. We are looking for candidates who are concluding a photographic project and seeking curatorial and editorial assistance to further develop their project.


We invite artists and photographers to explore the multifaceted concept of sustainability. Our contemporary artistic reality asks us to reflect deeply on the issues of climate change, representation, economic pressure, and the brutal realities of war. Interpretations that delve into environmental protection and sustainable use of earth resources, social equity, economic resilience, cultural diversity, and innovation are all welcome. With this open-ended theme we invite you to reflect on the interconnectedness of these topics and their impact on our collective future. Submissions may range from intimate portrayals of local initiatives to broader narratives addressing global challenges and the quest for a sustainable and inclusive future for all.
