One of the focal points of FOTO WIEN is to highlight the outstanding work of female photographers in order to counteract the dominance of male positions still prevailing in institutional and art historical contexts. The works on display are diverse in terms of their content and aesthetics. They stand for the diversity of women's photographic work, whereby the exhibition also offers an opportunity to examine works by women photographers who are still little known in Austria. What all women artists have in common is their engagement with political and social issues.
