«between the lines» looks at visual artists using publication as part of their practice.
The exhibition aims to give an overview of the dynamic artist’s books and publishing scene today.


The show brings together 70 books and periodicals produced over recent months, some self-published, some from small publishers, and some still in dummy form. They come from 20 countries including Egypt, Japan, and Moldavia. The selection encompass publications by Marianne Bjørnmyr, Julia Borissova, Lewis Bush, Bernhard Cella, Laura El-Tantawy, Nicholas Gottlund, Ikuru Kwuajima, Tom Lovelace, Raymond Meeks, Sakiko Nomura, Sophy Rickett... and innovative publishers’ projects from around Europe with a focus on Austria.

The works have been selected for their interesting approach to the images and for the way this is articulated in the publication. They deal with aesthetical, sociological and political issues related to photography such as abstraction, image privacy and politics of representation. Through the concept, the choice of format, the treatment of images and their articulation via texts, these artists and publishers explore the many possibilities offered by publishing as an art form.

A programme of events will explore different aspects of this burgeoning scene:
