From 10 March to 1 July 2018, the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg presents the exhibition Austria. Photography 1970–2000. The showcase was curated in collaboration with the Albertina in Vienna, and has been augmented with works from the museum’s own holdings.
The Museum der Moderne Salzburg ranks among the leading institutions for photography within Austria. In addition to its own, comprehensive in-house archive, the museum also houses the country’s national photography collection. Comprising more than 22 000 works, this visual record spans from 1945 to the present day.
The exhibition Austria. Photography 1970–2000 comprises excerpts from this unique body of fine-art photography. The showcase was curated in collaboration with Vienna’s Albertina Museum, and is now on display at the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg as an extended edition, comprising a number of additional works.
Retracing history, the selection focuses on social as well as architectural elements that are in the process of disappearing. The result is a visual rendition of a country’s political and social development, captured from a wide range of perspectives and with a broad spectrum of artistic approaches.
