In a time of environmental degradation, wasted resources, and political inaction, thinking about a “good life” seems nearly impossible. Camera Austria nevertheless responded to the call for tenders by the City of Graz within the framework of Graz Kulturjahr 2020 with the project The City & The Good Life, which was conceived by the entire […]

The Faulty Image

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.

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.

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 […]
