The exhibition entitled “Hohe Dosis. Recherchen zum Fotografischen heute“ is a FOTOHOF exhibition project on the status of photography in Austria today. Photography is a powerful medium for perceiving the world and reflecting on it, perhaps more so now in the 21st century than ever before. Our aim through the exhibition is to explore what today characterises the medium of photography at its core, i.e. what is “high-dosage” photography, as the title suggests? Especially at a time of dramatic technological changes in image production and in the use and presentation of the medium, we are interested in examining both the constants and the variables of the photographic apparatus or dispositif.
The exhibition features a cross-section through contemporary Austrian photography, with widely differing approaches, methods and strategies.
The exhibition is at two locations: the FOTOHOF itself and the exhibition venue in Attersee. While the “high dosage” concept is meant to be accessible in its own right at each of the two exhibition venues, we do see the two exhibitions as a single entity – which is why we recommend the two exhibitions and look forward to welcoming you at both.
