Magazine Launch: EIKON #99 with Focus “On Publishing Photography” in Cooperation with Camera Austria International


When: 5.9.2017, 7pm
Where: EIKON Schaufenster, Q21 in MuseumsQuartier Wien / Schauräume, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

The third EIKON issue of the year marks the beginning of fall with main articles of Jürgen Klauke, Jaakko Kahilaniemi, Elisabeth Czihakund Karin Fisslthaler, as well as an extensive interview with Gerald Bast and Patrick Werkner on the occasion of 150 Years of the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

In Focus: On Publishing Photography – already anticipating the 100th issue of EIKON, launched in November – addresses the question why contemporary photography magazines still hold on to print production in times of digitalization and commercialization and which programmatic strategies they pursue. For this purpose, together with Camera Austria International, EIKON invited selected international photography magazines to present themselves and their ideas and to allow the reader a glimpse behind the scenes.

Alongside discussions, i.e. of the solo exhibition by Shirin Neshat at Kunsthalle Tübingen and the group exhibition “How To Live Together” at Kunsthalle Wien, as well as reviews on new publications, you will find current announcements, open calls and exhibition recommendations.
