CIRCULATION(S) is the festival dedicated to emerging photography in Europe. Each year, at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS and satellite sites in France and abroad, it reveals the vitality of young creation and speaks for the diversity of photographic expressions through unique exhibitions and events. A stepping stone for artists, a prospective and innovative laboratory of contemporary creativity, CIRCULATION(S) has become, over the past 10 years, a must-attend photography event and a trend revelator.
