Slovak photography in Vienna

THE AIM of the newly opened Vienna gallery Artspace is to explore the development of European photography. The gallery has started its mission with an exhibition entitled Focus: Slovakia - Slovenia that will run until May 18. The following project will feature Polish, Czech, and Hungarian photography.

Photographs by avant-garde artist Irena Bluhová and architect-photographer Ladislav Foltyn, both students of the Bauhaus art school, represent Slovak photography from the 1920s and 1930s. They are accompanied by their contemporary, Slovenian Janko Skerpel.

The 1960s and 1970s are represented by Slovak Alex Mlynarčík and a group of Slovenian photographers from the OHO art union. The most current photographs are by Slovak Martin Kollár, Mišo Suchý, Marek Kvetán, and Slovenian Marjetica Potrčová, Tobiaš Putrih, and Tomaz Gregorič.
