  • Make a contribution to the cultural development in the communities where we operate

Our ambition is to create a courageous, distinctive, coherent and internationally recognised photography programme through:

  • Promoting emerging photographers
  • Building a focused photography collection from around the world

We invite you to join us on a monochrome and color trip of challenge, interpretation, search, beauty, ugliness, charm, contradiction, appreciation and joy.

URBAN PATTERNS

Two different kind of patterns define this serial:

Leaves – still on the trees; or as

Shadows – on walls and the patterns of contemporary architecture.

“Nature” and “Culture” (architecture and landscape) unite on surfaces made of concrete and glass.

VISITORS OF THE EINTAGSMUSEUM – BELGRADE, SERBIA  

This black-and-white series shows the making-of the exhibition of the Eintagsmuseum in Belgrade, Serbia during the 12th Museum Night in May 2015 themed “Eyes Open to the Night”. The images show the collaborators of the initiative and how the show was perceived by the visitors.

Under the title “EINTAGSMUSEUM REOPENS KLUB AKADEMIJA” we prepared a lecture room of the Faculty of Fine Arts as an exhibition space. Black wall fields as chalk boards were painted for a timeline of the Klub Akademija. A timeline of the history of the music-club was sketched. The visitors were invited to complete the timeline with their facts and stories.

The legendary Klub Akademija was located in the basement of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade and existed between 1961 and 2011. Especially in the 1980s and early 1990s – when the music club was managed by art students and had a very important impact on the Serbian subculture – the club played an important role for the the Serbian elites and the art- and music-scene.

Concept of the artistic Intervention: Johannes Hoffmann, Johanna Reiner, Vladimir Miladinovic + Isabel Termini.

VINEYARDS IN THE AUSTRIAN PROVINCE OF STYRIA

Atypical photographs of a popular Austrian landscape in very early spring. The weather was harsh during this exploration in Southern Styria, an Austrian region which is known for excellent wine.

The photographs are characterized by dramatic skylines. Emphasis is on the topography and the geometric shapes of the fields, meadows and vineyards.

WILD ‘BOUT NATURE: WINE AGRICULTURE IN VIENNA

This series explores the urban landscapes of Vienna: Some parts of the metropolis are still characterized by agriculture especially by vineyards, but also by vegetable growing.

In the last years the city marketing had put an emphasis on Vienna as a the biggest wine growing city. So somehow I am very much influenced by that. My aim is to show that urban farming is not an invention of the 20th century.

THE VISITORS – IV

The Visitors: An Associative Approach

The Visitors Series are about visitors in museums, galleries and other cultural institutions. I try to describe the dependency between the visitor and the space.

The Visitors Series are based on an associative approach. They depict the “others” and me, how I perceive others in an unfamiliar place and how I feel in a place that is just my usual working space.
