Following the tenth edition of FOTO WIEN, which was organized by FOTO ARSENAL WIEN for the first time, the new center of photography and lens-based media will launch its fall exhibitions with shows featuring two artists who will make their debuts in Austria.
Gundula Schulze Eldowy, one of the major proponents of German documentary photography, is the focus of the first solo show in an Austrian institution to feature her work. encompassing around 120 works. A parallel show presents a selection of complex works by the acclaimed Japanese multimedia artist Mari Katayama. Both artists challenge perception, norms, and conventions in their blunt investigations of situations, producing contrasting images that are full of vexation, provocation, and poetry.
