How does Austria look when viewed through Austrian objectives?


Austrian photographers put their own country and its sociocultural identities to the question: they focus on the country, its political past, its milieus, and its urban spaces. Such an inward gaze frequently brings to light aspects that had previously been in the process of disappearing.

The 1970s mark a new beginning for photography, a period during which its protagonists developed a new self-conception and a wide range of photographic movements emerged: documentary strategies and approaches that deal with the medium itself characterise photography’s overall development between 1970 and 2000.
