When the first booths produced by the Photomaton company appeared in Paris in 1928, artists, too, were fascinated by the possibility of obtaining automated self-portraits within minutes for very little money. The Surrealists, among them André Breton, Luis Buñuel, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí, were the first to recognise the artistic potential of photo booths. Many other artists were to follow, for example Andy Warhol, Arnulf Rainer and Cindy Sherman.

The photographer Elliott Erwitt delights in focussing his gift of observation on animals as well as humans – and, especially, on all-too-human situations. In his often humorous photos, he combines irony with insight, lightness with profundity. This comprehensive retrospective presents a highly active and versatile photographer who has also been called the “Woody Allen of photography”.

Politicians wrestle with crises as well as with their own public images. By presenting themselves effectively to the public, they hope to gain the voters’ trust and retain political power. However, the importance of political leaders in comparison with the CEOs of multinational corporations – which often have turnovers higher than the budgets of entire nations – is, on the whole, diminishing.

The photographer, artist and film director Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908–2004) was a widely travelled, cosmopolitan observer of world events. Even during his lifetime, Henri Cartier-Bresson, more than any other 20th-century photographer, was regarded as the personification of modern photography.

With this exhibition KUNST HAUS WIEN honours the artist on whose philosophy and artistic principles this institution is largely based.

The exhibition "René Burri – Photographs" at KUNST HAUS WIEN is a retrospective of the works of one of the most important photographers of our time. René Burri was born in Zurich in 1933.

In the exhibition "TINA MODOTTI – Photographer and Revolutionary", KUNST HAUS WIEN presents a comprehensive retrospective of a legendary photographer who has still not received the attention she deserves. Tina Modotti, who was born in 1896 in Udine, Italy and died in 1942 in Mexico, was one of the most fascinating women of the 20th century. She became famous as a result of the photographs she created in Mexico in the 1920s and her involvement in the revolutionary movements of her time.
4 March - 20 June 2010
Starting on 4 March 2010, KUNST HAUS WIEN will be presenting a spectacular new exhibition illustrating the problematic history of photography. All of the approximately 100 photographs on display have been the subject of controversies – some of them related to society and the media, others of a legal nature. What emerges is a sometimes moving, sometimes exciting odyssey through the world and the vicissitudes of published photographs. Among the pictures on display are numerous world-famous works by photographers such as Man Ray, Robert Capa, Lewis Carroll, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Oliviero Toscani, Robert Mapplethorpe or Todd Maisel.
