Tina Modotti. Photographer and Revolutionary
01.07.-07.11.10In 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.
Controversies. The Law, Ethics and Photography
04.03.-20.06.10Starting 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.

The first exhibition devoted to this outstanding artist, entitled "Annie Leibovitz: Photographs 1970 – 1990", took place in 1993 and was a resounding success, attracting over 80.000 visitors in the course of only 10 weeks.
