The OstLicht Gallery in Vienna will be showing photographs under the heading of 'Industry'. The exhibition, open from 24 January to 30 March 2013, ties in closely with the history of the OstLicht premises, which are located on a former industrial site – the building having once been a bread factory.
The exhibition addresses multiple aspects of industrial production. The photographers have explored issues such as how factory work has changed over time, and what it is like today; its significance in different geographical regions; and the effects of industry on not just the environment, but also the landscape. Included are images by Thomas Ruff, Edward Burtynsky and Michael Goldgruber.
