Vienna Opening 2019

Vienna Opening 2019

Our Vienna partner changed name and concept for a renewed version of their initial photo festival in 2019. Called these last years Eyes-On – European Month of Photography, the festival got a name change and the city opted for FOTO WIEN Festival. The aim of this major event is to showcase not just photography as an art medium but also the local photography scene. During four weeks, photography will be the city’s main theme. FOTO WIEN can rely on more than 100 partners in their programming – museums, exhibition venues, galleries, art universities, artists’ initiatives, and off-spaces. They will offer new insights into both the local and the international photography scene. In order to delve even deeper into the photography theme, FOTO WIEN has set up its very own Festival Headquarters, also a first. Over 19 days the Otto Wagner Postal Savings Bank in the capital’s first district is to become the hub of Vienna’s photography scene. The Festival Headquarters provide space for photo exhibitions, a Photobook Market; it is also a venue for international discussions on the big topic of photography. The exhibitions are complemented by workshops, portfolio reviews, lectures and much more.[/lang_en
