FOCUS Women Photographers

One of the focal points of FOTO WIEN is to highlight the outstanding work of women photographers in order to counteract the still prevailing museum and art historical dominance of male positions within the medium. The works on display are diverse in terms of content and aesthetics. They stand for the diversity of women's photographic work, whereby the exhibition above all enables an examination of works by women photographers who are still little known in Austria. What all women artists have in common is their reflection on political and social issues.

FOTOTECHNIKa

FOTOTECHNIKa deals with the primarily male connotated field of photographic technology and technical manuals in order to critically reflect and break down these historically shaped stereotypical gender attributions, but also to subject them to a reinterpretation.
