Have a look at some historic nudes

Geschäfte mit Kopien. Der “Fotografische Kunstverlag Otto Schmidt”

Leopold Museum’s latest exhibition showcases the work of the photographer Otto Schmidt.  Back in 1873 Schmidt got successful with his ‘Wiener Typen’ series and produced master studies that served as illustrative material for artists as well as craftsmen and architects. His most lucrative business, however, was his nude imagery, which actually was the most extensive in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Yes, you read that right, you can see actual historic nudes from the 19th century at the museum.

 

Art all about air

Wenn der Wind weht

The theme of this exhibition is one that concerns us all – air. 20 artists, national and international, are presenting their artistic interpretation of the matter at the Kunsthaus Wien.

Air as the energy of life as well as the danger of storms, air pollution, and climate change will all be subject of the artworks which aim to explore the human relationship with air, wind and breath.

Have a look at this photographer's fun and crazy work

REINER RIEDLER – THIS SIDE OF PARADISE

Rooted in classic documentary photography the work of Vienna-based photographer Reiner Riedler focuses (pun intended) on the pursuit of human happiness. To do so, he prefers seeking out places all over the world that promise at least a short-term escape from everyday life.

His images have been featured in various international photo festivals and now for the first time a broad selection will be shown at Westlicht. So don’t miss out on it!

Not your usual type of safari

Anna Jermolaewa Chernobyl Safari

Since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the area around the reactor of the nuclear power plant has become a nature reserve. Lynx, wolves, eagles, wild horses and other rare animals live in the almost deserted, feral area under the influence of radioactive contamination.

Russian photographer Anna Jermolaewa went on a safari to the exclusion zone to document the local wildlife. Her photos can be admired at this exhibition at MAK starting March 9th!
