“The Fotografis Collection is assuming a special place within the UniCredit Bank Austria art collection. Starting its activities in 1976, it treated photography as an artistic and creative medium and developed a representative cross-section of the history of international photography. The key formations of artistic photography – from the cradle years of the medium in the 1840s through to the 1980s – are compiled in the Fotografis Collection.
The artist Christian Kosmas Mayer (born in 1976 in Sigmaringen) slips into the role of curator for the exhibition “Daguerre’s Soup: Christian Kosmas Mayer x Fotografis”, and in the setting of the tresor in the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien produces an individual narrative of the photographic medium – characterised through new forms of presentation and critical response to photography.” — Kunstforum Wien
Exhibition in cooperation with Foto Wien and curated by Christian Kosmas Mayer and Veronika Rudorfer (Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien).
