070512: Fotohof - Inge Morath Award

Fotohof Inge Morath Award 19.04.12 - 9.06.12 Info gallery with grassroots democracy By Stephan Maier The courses have been booked out for weeks - on a normal workday, the day following the opening of the current exhibition, one hundred visitors are pouring into the new rooms of the Fotohof in Salzburg to attend a discussion with the artists. With its relocation to Lehen, the city’s secret celebrity precinct, the competence centre for artistic photography achieved an unexpected kick and visitor figures that other art associations wouldn’t even dare to dream of. The actual reason for the festivity dates one year back: in 2011, the association celebrated its 30th anniversary. The Fotohof 2012 is characterized by transparency and openness - only the outside walls are rigid, the other walls are easily moveable (architecture by transparadiso). Yet no matter how innovative the space concept, which was expanded from formerly 280 to now 465 m2 is, the association remained true to itself. From its earliest days, the Fotohof was organized as a grassroots democracy, decisions aren’t simply made - but discussed at length until consensus has been achieved among all those involved. At the opening, the unspectacular and sensational Dirk Braeckman was presented. With the four Inge Morath Award-winners (Olivia Arthur, Lurdes R. Basoli, Emily Schiffer and Zhe Chen), the current exhibition shows younger positions – placed somewhere between agency and museum, magazine journalism and artistic aspirations. The exhibition in the library presents the series “Exemplary Photo Books”, in which historic material from the “Fiesta in Pamplona” (1955) - by the legendary “Magnum” photographer Inge Morath, with whom the Fotohof has been closely connected since 1991 - and the photo book “Salzburg – An Artist’s View” are assembled.
