Eyes On opening at the MUSA on October 27, 2014

On November 27th , Vienna once again turned into the world’s largest stage for the art of photography. The country’s leading photography festival draws culture enthusiasts with 175 exhibitions showcasing works by over 650 Austrian and international artists. The program covers the entire city, with venues ranging from the Albertina to the Zacherlfabrik. The festival offers a comprehensive survey of artistic photography in all its dazzling variety. Solo exhibitions, large-scale group shows, singular interventions, pieces of installation art, and presentations in public spaces are accompanied by an extensive program of events including book presentations, lectures, workshops, photography walks, performances, guided tours, and the Eyes On Portfolio Review. Diversity is a key part of our mission.

2014 is a year of major historical anniversaries, and so one focus that emerged as we prepared the festival is the critical engagement with themes in history, which is reflected in contemporary positions such as those on display in “Memory Lab. Photography Challenges History” at MUSA as well as documentary pictures. Exhibition lasts until March 18th 2105
