Tableaus by Lisl Ponger

Share:

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg now surveys the art of the 2017 Otto Breicha Prize for Artistic Photography honoree, Lisl Ponger, in a comprehensive exhibition at the Rupertinum. The exhibition runs through 24 March, 2019.

Lisl Ponger (b. Nuremberg, DE, 1947) launched her career as a film and photography artist in the early 1970s. In staged photographic pieces such as La Catrina (2013) and Teilnehmende Beobachterin (2016), Ponger pinpoints the ways in which stereotypes, racist ideas, and scopic constructions that emerged in the mid-nineteenth century have persisted and even thrived in photography.

She is also a collector, gathering objects of Western vernacular culture and trinkets from tourist souvenir shops that reveal the Western engagement with foreign cultures for her fictional Museum MuKul (Museum for Foreign and Familiar Cultures). Divided into three sections, her exhibition “Professione: fotografa” will showcase numerous major photographic tableaus and a selection of early films as well as objects and sculptures from the Museum MuKul.
