When the new FOTO WIEN Festival, Month of Photography, gets underway for the first time, the whole of Vienna will be given over to photography from 20 March to 20 April 2019. The aim of this major event is to showcase not just photography as an art medium but also the local photography scene. For a whole four weeks, photography will be the city’s main theme. As part of FOTO WIEN, more than 100 partners in the programme – museums, exhibition venues, galleries, art universities, artists’ initiatives, and off-spaces – will offer new insights into both the local and the international photography scene.
