Exhibition Opening | Young Austrian Photography | Uncommon Places

Uncommon Places is a collective exhibition that introduces the work of young Austrian photographers (one as collective). Subjects of this exhibition are places that have been discovered in Austria and abroad – real existing unusual places. However, some of them are dealing with a particular state of mind - influenced by ones surrounding, relationships or simply evoke through the existence of its history.

In his series 'Changing Views', Stefan Oláh shows an excerpt of his book project “Österreichische Architektur der 50er Jahre fotografiert von Stefan Oláh” (Austrian Architecture of the 50s).

Bruno Klomfar's series 'past future' originated from his fascination for the structures of the 60s and 70s – architectural manifestations of utopias often built in concrete.  With 'The maid´s shift', Set Designer and Photographer Monika Nguyen illustrates the parallel existence of two different social classes and visualizes the attempt to realize a projection of longing.
The photographic series 'Lost And' by Luise Hardegg was taken in Wonder Valley California. While driving through the dessert Hardegg asked herself who might have lived once in this ghostly and feral environment.
In order to travel and trace the length of the earth’s circumference, Six and Petritschgenerated a concentrated, closed situation with their series 'Around the world': they drove their Saxy mopeds on a two-kilometer-long former racetrack in northern Spain.

We would also like to invite you to a delicious glass of Austrian wine! Join us for this special exhibition opening!
