This latest project by Walid Raad considers the ramifications of the growing cultural tourism as evidenced by the increasing number of art museums in cities such as Abu-Dhabi, Beirut, Cairo, Doha, and Istanbul. The exhibition combines visual pieces and performance. Throughout the course of the exhibition there will be walk-throughs limited to 30 people with Walid Raad (in German with Markus Reymann). The exhibition and research for this new project grew out of Raad’s, The Atlas Group (1989 – 2004), which was established to research and document the contemporary history of Lebanon.

Raad’s photographic prints of changing building facades in Beirut was featured in Aperture magazine 198, Spring 2010 and We Decided to Let Them Say ‘We Are Convinced’ Twice was published in PHOTOart: Photography in the 21st Century (Aperture).

Kay von Aspern

When you think of Vienna, one doesn’t immediately think of quirky street photography, but Kay von Aspern has a gift for finding it. Born in Germany, now living in Vienna, Kay is a “Collector of Moments”. A member of the German-Austrian street photographer collective seconds2real, Kay looks for those unique juxtapositions that can only be found with the heightened visual acuity that comes from split second observations.

“Sometimes he’s a magician. He makes something visible, the others remain hidden. The puzzle pieces of city life creates a single picture in front of his lens. Then he presses the shutter button and keeps the moment in a unique composition. This photo does not form a situation from what it is, but as only he can see them. A bit of luck is occasionally in the game: On bad days the road seems to want to reveal anything and even for hours photographic stroll remains unrewarded. On good days, it gives the photographer a special light or a unique meeting right from your own front door. For these moments, he makes repeatedly on the way to the special in the ordinary noted.”

Marco Citron : a photographer with a zest of irony

© Marco Citron ” Boring Landscapes” / Food For Your Eyes

Marco Citron is a italian photographer with a lot of irony in his eyes.

“The Heroic deers of People Lives in the Centuries”, which he called one time “Boring Landscapes” according to a series well known by a quiete famous british photographer, looks like vintage postcards from the soviet era. But it’s not. He used old films and altered a little bit more the colors digitally. He did the photographs  in Ukraine shooting modernist buildings in the suburbs  where nothing had really changed from the 60’s or 70’s, even the cars.

This slideshow was produced few months ago for Food For Your Eyes Slideshow presentation  in Vienna. Marco suggested me a music who plays so well with his series.
