On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the magazine EIKON, LE BAL, in cooperation with the Forum Culturel Autrichien (Paris), invites editors, graphic designers, photographers, and historians to discuss the future of print publications dedicated to photography.

This event, as proposed by Abigail Solomon-Godeau, author and professor emeritus at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Arno Gisinger, artist and lecturer at the Université Paris 8, is centered around the topics of three contemporary magazines: EIKON, Camera Austria International and Transbordeur.

The three magazines have a distinct positioning: Since around three decades, Camera Austria International and EIKON play a key role in the dissemination and promotion of international photography. These two magazines, originating in the specific cultural context of the 1980s and 1990s in Austria, demonstrate both the recognition of the photographic medium and a great openness towards new practices of contemporary image creation. Transbordeur, a new magazine for the history of photography joins this evening of presentations, screenings and debates about the essential question: For what reasons and in what ways are print magazines published in the digital age?
