By using reduction and liberating objects from their contexts of origin, Hansen has succeeded […]

In recent years, Camera Austria has worked with many artists whose works deal quite directly with archive-related issues. The artists Özlem Altin, Sven Augustijnen, Eric Baudelaire, Martin Beck, Peggy Buth, Peter Friedl, Maryam Jafri, Tatiana Lecomte, Uriel Orlow, Ines Schaber, and Ala Younis, among others, construct in their artwork a kind of archive—temporary, provisional—and compile […]

Un-Curating the Archive

In recent years, a series of artistic positions were present—both in the exhibitions of Camera Austria and in the magazine Camera Austria International—which deal with questions related to the archive.

Tatiana Lecomte: Meine erste Löwin

The photographic source material, which Tatiana Lecomte liberally appropriates, which she “borrows”, to use the artist’s own words for her approach, is to be seen not only in a general historical context but most especially as being anchored in the history of photography. Images that document African safaris and stylize the slaying of animals as […]
