Photography 1970-2000

What does Austria look like when seen through the lens of its own photographers? That is the question explored by this exhibition, which was conceived in cooperation with the Albertina, Vienna, and will be modified for the presentation in Salzburg. Starting in the 1970s, Austrian photographers scrutinized their home country, its cultural identities, social milieus, and traditions. This introspective turn also revealed aspects of Austrian life that were about to vanish. The diverse photographic tendencies that emerged, devising documentary strategies, staging tableaus, and engaging with the medium itself, may be regarded as characteristics of the evolution of photography between 1970 and 2000.
