“Magie des Abdrucks“ presents individual researches on the creation as well as the aquaintance of photographs. Ten art students attending the Kunsthochschule Weißensee / Berlin and 17 art students attending the Kunstuniversität / Linz present their focus on the devolution between the image and the reproduction.

How do we make a picture of the world today? Photography is more than ever an everyday phenomenon. Even the layman automatically succeeds in taking a picture. Young artists are turning to the medium of photography in spite of this, or precisely because of it, and the question arises as to how value can be found beyond correct exposure and depth of field, which makes the production of photography relevant as an artistic expression. Why actually take a photograph yourself when there are now almost unlimited archives? What can a picture do? (Dirk Peuker)
Every photographic image is preceded by a process of transfer between the image and what is depicted. What we see now when we look at a photograph is thus always an effect on something that has already happened. The goal of the project is a formal and content-related questioning of the photographic medium. (Martin Bilinovac)

Photography can be seen in this exhibition in color, in motion and as a three-dimensional object, and thus simultaneously formulates the invitation to look beyond the edge of the image. The space becomes a laboratory in which development takes place.
