After a series of superb art exhibits – especially Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec drew the crowds – the Bank Austria (BA) Kunstforum (www.bankaustria-kunstforum.at) is presenting large, powerful photos by Andreas Gursky and many other photographers who might not be as famous as the German.
The range of subjects is surprisingly wide – uninhabited islands, Eastern Asian skyscrapers, idyllic Italian towns and a black and white aerial photograph of Los Angeles are on display. While some images are strikingly realistic, others are deliberately confusing and misleading.
“Landscape in my Mind. Landschaftsfotografie heute.” (curated by Florian Steininger) demonstrates the artistic force of photographic achievements.
