Give (yourself) Architecture

Presentation
“Archicard Edition 01: Anonymous Austrian Architecture”

Major urban star architecture owes its media presence and boom, magic and diversity to its images. But what is architecture photography focusing on in those moments when it is not involved with commissioned presentations, and looks at everyday architectural settings? Here, images by 16 major contemporary Austrian architecture photographers provide personal answers to this question. Their response is a view of the second-hand architecture of the peripheries and wastelands, of zones of aesthetic wilderness, of different symbols inscribed in those of architecture, of built mongrels, hybrid spaces, architectural meta-terrain. The photographs tell the parallel history of architecture, and speak of the formative power of normality and normalisation. This edition provides a subtle patchwork, rich in allusions. As is to be seen here, the work being done in the poetic laboratories of photographic art is not just metaphorically against the overly restrictive boundaries applying to both métiers: the architecture and the art that produces its images.
Georg Schöllhammer
