The exhibition series Collection on Display VI presents works from a thematic point of view; the current and sixth exhibition under the theme of the portrait.

The image of the individual – whether artistic self-portrait, personal representation or chance snapshot – is always in the context of the image of society and other people. This may be expressed in the highly individual relation between portrayer and portrayed, or in the dialogue between the individual and the masses. Aspects and factors that photographers pick up on, are the anonymisation of people in an urban structure, just as the search for the specific in the representation of the individual.

The exhibition showcases works from the collections of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, the Federal Photography Collection and the Fotografis Bank Austria.


With works by Étienne Carjat, Ernst Haas, Inge Morath, Angus McBean, Fritz Henle, Beat Streuli, Dominik Steiger, Manfred Willmann, Nikolaus Walter, Bitter/Weber and Katharina Struber.

Director: Sabine Breitwieser
Curator: Margit Zuckriegl, Curator Photography and Media Art
