Austria. Photography 1970-2000

€ 30,70


Austrian photographers question their own country and its socio-cultural identities. The country, the political past, milieus and urban spaces are brought into the light.

Looking inwards often reveals aspects that were about to disappear. The 1970s are characterized by a new beginning in which photographers develop a new self-image and a variety of photographic trends emerge: documentary strategies and the examination of the medium itself characterize the development of photography between 1970 and 2000.

Represented photographers: Heimrad Bäcker, Gottfried Bechtold, Norbert Brunner & Michael Schuster, Heinz Cibulka, Peter Dressler, VALIE EXPORT, Johannes Faber, Bernhard Fuchs, Seiichi Furuya, Robert F. Hammerstiel, Bodo Hell, Helmut Kandl, Leo Kandl, Friedl Kubelka, Branko Lenart, Elfriede Mejchar, Lisl Ponger, Gerhard Roth, Günther Selichar, Nikolaus Walter, Manfred Willmann.
