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. So on the one hand, the point is to imagine archives that do not exist but would be necessary, and on the other, to add […]

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 […]
