The name, Galerie Raum mit Licht (space with light), represents an interest in collaboration with and presentation of both Austrian and international artists in the field of contemporary photography and sculpture. In line with a programmatic focus on the connection between sculptural space and photographic surfaces, emphasis is placed on artistic positions whose approach to the composition of space and photographic implementation reveal the formal conditions of discursive and technical processes and make tangible the transitory mediation of reality within the boundaries of representation. Where once a subject worked towards approximation of the ideal and photographic image, photography now reveals the structures of desire, which photographers speak of in their works about the formation and transformation of identities.

In place of documentary representation and reproduction of atmospheric images and spaces, we aim to highlight the transformation of reality as it appears in the medium of photography. From the entry of light into the texture of the image, to the consolidation of surfaces into an inner space, to the disintegration of given conditions and the independence of the artist’s work – we are interested in photography as the expression of an artistic process, including its underlying mechanisms. As a space committed to the exploration of these processes, Galerie Raum mit Licht focuses in its exhibitions and the collection, on works which reflexively process the inconspicuous contradictions of everyday life and allow us to understand the dynamics between the length of an installation and the history of its development.

The Galerie Raum mit Licht offers the opportunity to give space to the multifaceted character of the photographic image: in combination with sculpture, photography in its various forms is brought to light as the object of examination.
