Upcoming exhibition Sven Johne Where the sky is darkest, the stars are brightest.
Opening & book presentation Friday, 7. 6. 2013, 7 pm within the scope of CMRK
Duration of the exhibition: 8. 6. - 1. 9. 2013
For his first extensive solo presentation in Austria, the artist combines a selection of works from recent years with new projects which pinpoint the precarious, controversial and increasingly questioned space of âdocumentalityâ (Hito Steyerl) of the visual in the world of today. In this respect, the exhibition project focuses on the specific practices and methods in which Sven Johne involves the photographic image in different projects in different places: the claim for reportage, the interest in marginal events, the missing of representation, the gap between text and imageâwhereby the artist outlines an essential contribution to the current debate circling around the documentary.
CMRK On June 7, 2013, beginning at 6 pm, < rotor >, Camera Austria, KÃ¼nstlerhaus / Halle fÃ¼r Kunst und Medien and Grazer Kunstverein will host exhibition openings remaining open until 10pm.

Presentation in the realm of the exhibition opening, 7. 6. 2013
It is local events, moments of stepping out of order, which attract the artistâs attention and from which he builds a mosaic of details. It is under the starry night sky as a metaphor for order and navigation where he staged these incoherent details, like an odyssey that requires cunning to reach oneâs destination. What we get from the laboratory of the neoliberal annihilation of an entire country is only pictures of its night sky and the artistâs anecdotes from his trips. Hence, the future is more than uncertain, and this work presents ambivalent motifs between aberration, hope and salvation.

Michele Robecchi: Shirana Shahbazi Mark Durden: Wolfgang Tillmans Vanessa Joan MÃ¼ller: Stephanie Kiwitt Ãscar Faria: Heinz Peter Knes Kolumne: T. J. Demos Four outstanding representatives of contemporary photographyâStephanie Kiwitt, Shirana Shahbazi, Heinz Peter Knes, and Wolfgang Tillmansâhave provided the thematic framework for the current issue: What can an individual image be, except good?
This rhetorical-critical question repeatedly accompanies us when conceptualising the content of our magazine, where we attempt to foster discourse that clearly extends beyond the individual imageâdiscourse that instead posits forms of documentation and, also, serial working approaches as the focus of reflection. The aim here is to consistently comprehend photographic practice as a form of critical commentary or as involvement in or visualisation of politics and everyday life.
New Website online!
since 22. 5. 2013
On 22 May 2013 Camera Austriaâs new website went online. The idea started with a strong desire to better convey how multifaceted our activities are: our homepage now gives a broader overview of current projects, including the magazine Camera Austria International, books from the Edition Camera Austria, exhibitions, and artistsâ editions. What is more, you will find up-to-date information about relevant projects in the field of contemporary photography, as well as an improved menu arrangement. Special attention has been paid to documenting the Camera Austria exhibitions and to presenting contributions to our magazine or available press photos. Also, the display of longer texts is now possible.
The design of the website is oriented to the characteristic elements found in all other Camera Austria print materials, thus rounding out the renewal of the overall presentation, which included the redesign of the magazine, the invitations, and various information folders. The website is now being expanded step by step to include an online shop, an archive, an online library search, and the Pierre Bourdieu Archive. This will be a comprehensive online archive on contemporary photography, reflecting Camera Austriaâs position as one of the most important international interfaces between photography, art, and society.

Winner Selection Juried by leading editors, publishers, curators, gallery owners, consultants, creative directors, and art directors, Px3 brings the best of photography from across the globe to Paris.
A few artists have asked if there is a final 'SUBMIT' button to click after uploading their images and texts. In fact there is none, once you have uploaded your material it is there for the jurors to see, but remains editable until the deadline. If you wish to edit the text on a specific image I am afraid you will need to delete that image and re-upload.
More importantly, a handful of artists have had issues uploading their images. We are still investigating this, but in the meantime we have reduced the maximum sizes to 1500 pixels on the longest side and a 1mb file size. We believe the larger sizes we initially specified could be causing problems.
Please be reassured that we will not proceed to shortlisting and selections until all such errors are resolved and all applicants' submissions are correct.
There are just 10 days to go until submissions close for this inaugural Cord Prize. Don't miss it.

The exhibition aims to showcase artists who use materials of the past to comment on the contemporary. The exhibition is about the protection and preservation of South Africa national heritage and the symbols and artifacts of that heritage. It is also about using the arts to question and challenge the reading of the past, to reach a new understanding of it and to craft a new and inclusive narrative for the country. Gerhard Marx, Maja Marx and Philip Miller recall "The Truth and Reconciliation Commission", through the creation of an installation of seven films with audio; using the souâ¦

Mathias Poledna (born 1965 in Vienna) completed his studies at the University of Applied Arts and the University of Vienna. He has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2000.
His work examines the interconnections between art and entertainment, modernity in architecture and design, the language of film, cinema and the process of image making in our culture. Often informed by extensive research, his projects of recent years have taken the form of minimal and highly evocative film installations that suggest a complex tension between their visceral attraction and concepts circulating aroâ¦

The official Australian representation at the 55th International Art Exhibition comprises an exhibition of new works by Simryn Gill and is curated by Catherine de Zegher. Simryn Gill works in the realm of the ephemeral and the domestic, with its daily habits and repetitions. Through her images and collections of objects, she brings into play her, and our, everyday experiences. Once formed, these works have the unexpected capacity to disturb our ideas of order. Be they books and words, landscapes of sublime power, or discarded objects of uncertain value, the different elements of her work existâ¦
Anri Sala Represents France at the Germany Pavilion
Wed 29 May 15:00
The piece he is creating for the Biennale is titled Ravel Ravel Unravel, a subtle word play on the verb and the eponymous composer. In 1930, Maurice Ravel created a concerto to be played exclusively by the left hand, and it is upon this composition that the installation pivots. Two films focus separately upon the left hands of two renowned pianists â Louis Lortie and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet â who were invited by Sala to perform the piece. The films, played simultaneously, reveal the differences and discrepancies between the two interpretations of the music, as the temporal lapse becomâ¦
In 2013 Gaensheimer carries forward this critical investigation of the significance of traditional forms of national representation in the national pavilions at the Venice Biennale. Contemporary artistic production in Germany, as elsewhere, is characterized by multilayered forms of cooperation between artists from all over the world and by international intellectual and cultural exchange. Therefore, at the Venice Biennale, Germany will not be represented as a hermetic national unit but as an active participant in a complex, worldwide constellation. For this reason Gaensheimer has invited four â¦
The Japan Foundation has invited the artist Koki Tanaka and curator Mika Kuraya to provide the Japan Pavilion contribution to the 55th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, opening 1 June 2013.

Having experienced the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, a disaster on an unprecedented scale, what message should Japan be sending to the world? This is the question that inspired the plan proposed by Tanaka andâ¦
Finland presents two solo exhibitions under the heading Falling Trees: Terike Haapoja in the Nordic Pavilion and one of Antti Laitinen in the Finnish Aalto Pavilion. True to its title, the exhibition concept revisits a dramatic event at the 2011 biennale: the abrupt falling of a large tree that left the Finnish pavilion severely damaged and effectively closed the exhibition ahead of time. With this singular event as its starting point, Falling Trees reassesses our relationship with nature through multiple means of re-enactment and repetition.
From Baku to Venice : six contemporary artists from the land of fire.
Fakhriyya MammadovaÂ´s (born 1974) photographs show the fragments of a story of a young bride. The traditional Azeri wedding ceremony is observed from an exterior point of view, changing between a documentary and intimate perspective.
The Polaroid series of Sanan Aleskerov (born 1956) shows his personal vision of social and aesthetical changes in cities and landscapes in Azerbaijan.
The notion of bottari (bundle) as a whole and totality and the concept of sewing have been the central components of Kimsoojaâs work for over three decades. Posing various questions about the formal aspects of tableau, sculpture, object and installation, bottari encompasses issues of body, self and others and the relationship of yin and yang to life and death. Bottari explores problems of location and dislocation, migration, exile, and war, while posing existential and cognitive questions in space and time.
Resistance is a survey on the discourses, techniques and management tactics developed for the body today and focuses on the interventions and strategies that both release the body from its own restrictions and restrict it in order to control it. Ali Kazma attempts to read the complex meanings and the enigma produced by the body as a physical and conceptual space from within a broad network of relations. In this multi-channel video installation to be premiered in Venice, Kazma researches the networks that shape the body within social, cultural, economic, political, scientific and mental layers.â¦

The title of the exhibition WINTER is inspired by the poem of the 19th century Kazakh poet and thinker Abay Qunanbayuli who left a great intellectual legacy to the region of Central Asia and whose work was concerned with questions of social justice in his time.
In our curatorial project for the International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia 2013, we recontextualize this poem to current day Central Asia, employing the key of the metaphorical to address the current socio-political context in the region and the issue of artistic agency. We aim to broaden the political debate in tâ¦
Each bomb has its own story, which is essentially one of two kinds. Bombs may explode and thus fulfill their role as objects made specifically for the purpose of destruction, and then enter history books and the personal histories that families maintain. Zsolt Asztalos in his turn looks into the other possible story in an installation he has prepared for the 55th International Art Exhibition in Venice: the story of the malfunctioning device (unexploded bomb) as it leaves behind its original function, assumes a life of its own, starts writing a narrative, becoming a director of our lives througâ¦
The exhibition National Works explores two major works by sculptor Sami Mohammad (b. 1943) along with a new photographic production by Tarek Al-Ghoussein (b. 1962). Curated by Ala Younis, National Works disassembles symbols of grandeur in paused/post glorious times, in an attempt to re-interpret Kuwaitâs modernization project.
For this exhibition, Tarek Al-Ghoussein tracks encounters with grandness in sites significant to Kuwait's history. This chapter of his K Files, a work in-progress, marks returns to sites of proportion and vastness, with an attempt to considerâ¦

TheCord Prize, is a new international contemporary art award established to support and acknowledge the practice of early and mid-career visual artists. The award comprises an individual first prize of $10,000, second prize of $1,000, and third prize of $500. Additionally, twenty-two artists will be selected for online exhibition and a piece of writing will be commissioned from the award jurors.
The inaugural Cord Prize â Contemporary art photography
Photography has become a universally accepted, unchallenged, medium of contemporary art. Concomitantly, photographyâs capacity to influence our everyday lives has become exponentially important with the ubiquity of visual social media and the opening up of the possibilities for us to communicate and disseminate our photographic images independently of institutional support. It could be said that the ubiquity which photography has achieved, its establishment in the contemporary art canon, is both a blessing and a problem â marking a new beginning, a place to start from all over again, yet more challenging than ever to make meaningful photographic work that resonates in cultural spaces and will endure. The inaugural Cord Prize invites early and mid-career artists who are working within the field of photography to apply.
Against this setting, applicants to the inaugural prize are invited to submit up to 16 images of current work from a wholly or partially photo-based practice, using any photographic process or medium. Applications should be accompanied by a resume, and text of up to 400 words detailing the artist's research and practice. Applicants may also wish to contextualise their work within what they see as the significant cultural issues at play within contemporary art photography.
Submissions close at midnight (GMT) on 9th June 2013.
We are extremely pleased and excited to announce the jurors for this first edition of the award are the hugely respected and admired curators and writers Diana Edkins and Charlotte Cotton.
The jurorsâ selection will be announced approximately two weeks after the deadline.
The Cord Prize, established by UK games industry veteran EA Lindsay, will be followed later in the year by the launch of CordContemporary, an online only gallery, presenting a portfolio of invited artists, partially selected from submissions to the various editions of the award. The ambition of CordContemporary is to establish the online gallery, with a programme of exhibitions supported by critical writing and serious curatorial practice, as a viable cultural presence; and a place to look forward to visiting as one would a physical gallery.
The Cord Prize will be awarded twice-annually, alternating focus on specific disciplines, with curated themes and critical surveys; and with photo-based practice as a recurring thread.
