155 | 2021

The works presented in Camera Austria International no. 155 are devoted to different ways of accessing archives through exploration and illustrate how these archives are always also characterized by processuality and not necessarily by linear readings. Hence, the artist contributions featured in this issue show the incompleteness, the overlapping and changing, that characterizes landscapes, archives, […]

Something, Like Nothing, Happens Anywhere

This exhibition is the second in a series of three presentations in addition to the regular 2021 exhibition program. We have become accustomed to the transience of (digital) photographic images. They are created everywhere, without really being planned or designed; they circulate, disappear again, or are stored for an indefinite period of time in various […]

Presented in the issue at hand are artistic works characterized by hybrid media worlds and by approaches that field manifold media-immanent topics based on the immediate process of photography, while also probing the (post-)photographic dispositive, which is always embedded in the culture of the present day. A central point of focus here is the way […]

Fell

Fell sounds like the Dutch vel, meaning “skin” as opposed to fur (hairy skin). Fell sounds like falling too, in the English past tense. In the exhibition Stephan Keppel: Hard Copies at Camera Austria (11. 6. – 15. 8. 2021), four large Fell prints, xeroxed by Keppel on a used Océ toner printer, are hanging […]

The artistic positions presented in this issue take very different approaches to dealing with opportunities for thematizing and reactualizing past experiences that also involve colonial or anti-Semitic violence, as well as to ultimately making them relevant to a contemporary context.

If Time Is Still Alive
The City & The Good Life

The good life, and the life of the city, is now a question of both time and space. While we can see the effects of the spatial order of the pandemic on cities and publicness—with the distancing of bodies, the closing of shops and restaurants, et cetera—how does the temporal order become visible and understood? […]

In The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard states that “our house is our corner of the world” (p. 26), a place shaped by memories and reveries. Yet the domestic sphere is certainly not to be seen as a site for retreating into a state of self-focused interiority, especially not in times of social distancing and […]
