Graz had developed from the 1950s, more than the federal capital at that time, into a place of production and mediation of progressive photography and with this tradition created a rich breeding ground for contemporary photography. The protagonists of this period contributed significantly to establishing photography as an art form in Austria, founding important institutions and influencing younger generations in the Graz photo schools.
The Styrian photo biennial photo graz is continuously dedicated to the presentation as well as the promotion of the current photo scene in Graz and Styria. With contributions from 254 photo artists, photo graz 020 presented a multifaceted snapshot of the Styrian scene. The exhibition photo graz selection IV shows a selection of 26 positions.
The works thematize reflections on society, culture and politics, but also open up access to individual, existential questions. They examine the aspect of beauty in transience, deal with the perception and representation of reality, and question the role and possibilities of the medium of photography. With analogue b/w photography, the photogram to algorithmically based image representation, space is given to different photographic techniques. Around sixty works offer an insight into the current photographic work of artists born between 1940 and 2000 in Styria, including internationally active personalities as well as academy and amateur photographers.
