New stuff soon!

Please be a little patient with me in the next time - I am intensely working on two new projects and I will try to master the next major steps in the coming weeks. 2016 will be the year of presentations: two new bodies of work, two new books and some exhibitions are on the way. I hope you are as much looking forward to it as I am.

K2 - Kunsthalle Semriach

Probably my favorite exhibition ever! Artist Christian Eisenberger has decided 10 years ago that Semriach, the small village he is coming fron, needs a 'Kunsthalle' (museum of contemporary art). Due to the fact that there was not budget to construct a 'real' building, he made a mini version of it in the measures of a banana box. The mini museum is now installed on the main square of Semriach and the visitors have to go down on their knees to watch the exhibited art. My exhibition is entitled "чан/Staub" - it is a variation of the 'dust' - series, consisting of dust I have collected at the refugee home Semriach.

They have opened a temporary studio in an empty shop and are doing portraits of the passers-by to create a portrait of the area. Really well done!

Photolucida 'Critial Mass' Top 50

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH: a first glimpse into the new project which I have done over the past four years together with Clemens Marschall (Rokkos Adventures). We were focusing on Viennese wine bars, called "Branntweiner" or "Beisln" - small, shabby dens which have been a part of Vienna for decades and are currently disappearing forever. I have taken photos, Clemens has done interviews with the bosses and the staff and has created an oral history out of the recorded material. Tough images, I know, but charming, too (as I hope). No project before has ever touched me so much and I am really thankful for the wild, funny and sometimes melancholic days and nights. An honest 'thank you!' goes out to everyone in the bars who has supported our project - for their trust, there openness and the good times. The photo book to the series, entitled GOLDEN DAYS BEFORE THEY END, will be published at EDITION PATRICK FREY in Zürich coming spring - more than 250 pages filled with photos and texts. Why I am posting all this? The project just got chosed amongst the Top 50 at PHOTOLUCIDA's 'Critical Mass'.

This essay is now published in a book called 'NEXTLAND - Contemporary Landscape Architecture in Austria'. I will post images and more information on the book soon.

You can see some photos and texts from 'Just the two of us' there. I am sure the six tattooed men from my series whose photos are shown (unfortunately, all of them are already deceased) would be very proud to be part of a museum's exhibition. I am really happy that, after a long period of stigmatization, prison tattoos are finally seen as what they are: drastic signs of freedom engraved in the skin of a caged body.

"It's a surprise that starts with the cover. It's a felt cover that looks like a big ball of felty flush mashed into flatness. You just want to stroke it to death. It's like a bunny rabbit in book form. A dusty bunny rabbit." COLIN PANTALL on "Dust" Sentence like these ones are exactly the cause why I like the Blog of Colin Pantall so much. I really appreciate his fine blade and his distinctive style of writing and I can't wait to meet him in person at the Vienna Photo Book Festival in June.

Schock - Color your life

It is with great pleasure to present the first design of an image and advertising campaign I did together with Katharina Schaffer for the german company SCHOCK. Thanks to the open-mindedness of our client, SCHOCK, we had time to experiment and to create images which were fitting to the only two wishes of the client: getting images which are positively confusing, and which are not prominently showing their main product, the granite sinks (although plenty of them are hidden in the images). It has been a completely new territory for me and Katharina to create photo collages consisting of own photos and other footage. Compared to the kind of photography I normally do, everything has been different - the approach, the workflow, the outcome. But I can reveal one thing: I liked it a lot! I will post the other images once they have been put online on the SCHOCK website.

I have been to Bulgaria in August, and the most thrilling part of the journey has been a trip to BUZLUDZHA monument. This giant monument, originally built by the communist party in the 1980s, now stands abandoned since bulgarian communism came to an end in 1989. I managed to slip into the monument through a small hole, and I am still thankful for one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Simply breathtaking.

Thanks to the open-mindedness of our client, SCHOCK, we had time to experiment and to create images which were fitting to the only two wishes of the client: getting images which are positively confusing, and which are not prominently showing their main product, the granite sinks (although plenty of them are hidden in the images). It has been a completely new territory for me and Katharina to create photo collages consisting of own photos and other footage. Compared to the kind of photography I normally do, everything has been different - the approach, the workflow, the outcome. But I can reveal one thing: I liked it a lot! I will post the other images once they have been put online on the SCHOCK website. Model: Ronni Wood Idea, concept, photography and graphic design: Klaus Pichler & Katharina Schaffer

Paper Journal

Thanks to Katie Stretton for the great review of 'Skeletons in the Closet' in the great PAPER JOURNAL. I am not sure how many copies of the book are left, but definitely less than hundred, so it is slowly but steadily approaching the 'sold out' status. You can still get your copy at my website (link below the review).

'One Third' at Tempo Color Festival

I am happy about being part of the exhibition 'Manger un mur' at Tempo Color Festival in Liege, Belgium. The exhibition is about food and consumption, the photos will be shown as huge posters. It is a pleasure for me to know my pictures amongst works of people which are really impressing me, like (a.o.) Henk Wildschut, Freya Najade, Mishka Henner or Corey Arnold. I will be showing images of 'One Third'.

DUST will be a book soon!

It is with great pleasure to announce that my new photo book, DUST, will be released in late 2014 via ANZENBERGER EDITION. I know that the project is a bit older, but I have always thought (and still do) that the project simply works best as a book, and this piece of news is a little dream coming true. I am really looking forward to continue the design process of the book and to select the finest and best suiting materials for it. I will keep you posted!

Mikka Blank

Proudly presenting the cover artwork for MIKKA BLANK's upcoming album 'Interzone Reactor', which will be released on blankTON recordings on September 14th. I really enjoyed working with old and found footage photographs and rearranging them to slightly absurd and eerie sceneries. The cover image is only one of around twenty images I have done for MIKKA BLANK, the full series will be revealed soon.

Kleine Zeitung Sommergespräch

For all of us, there are certain newspapers which we are hooked on and feel a strong connection to. In my case, it is the KLEINE ZEITUNG, the daily quality newspaper for Styria. I loved it when I was a kid and went to school in Styria, and I still love it some years (decades) after. And therefore, I really feel honored to get interviewed from Bettina Oberrainer of the KLEINE ZEITUNG for an interview series called 'Sommergespräche'.

Fotojatka

FOTOJATKA is a photo festival from the Czech Republic with a quite refreshing presentation concept: instead of showing the images in exhibitions, thev festival is taking place in cinemas in Prague, Brno and Ceske Budejovice where the photo series will be presented as movies. Animated slideshows with music are not only bringing the images to live, they also create a new and multilayered perception of the images. I had the honor to be present at the festival with movies of 'One Third' and 'Dust'.

It seems that the 'One Third' exhibition in Hongkong has quite an impact - the press clipping is really impressive. I am really happy about that and still feel honored about the effort that has been taken to create the great display for the exhibition. A screenshot from the website of 99YS Magazine stands representative for all the other articles.

"One Third" in Hongkong

"One Third" in Hongkong! This is BY FAR the most creative exhibition setup have I ever had at any of my exhibitions. I have never seen giant 3D-versions of my photographed objects, neither has any exhibition been combined with an organic juice bar. Great!!! GO.ASIA has organized an even called "reFOODlution", consisting of the LOHAS experience, the installation of "One Third" and the organic juice bar. The goal is to both to highlight the importance of healthy eating and living and to stop food waste. Venue: Atrium, K11 Art Mall, 18 Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong Thanks x 1000 to Beatrice Chankawai and her team!!!

Visual Q&A on COOPH

The brandnew Austrian online magazine COOPH- The cooperative of photography- invited me to do a 'Visual Q&A'. They had sent me some questions, I had to answer them with images. I decided to create a mini series and to torture the plants of my flat. It's been great fun to creat something spontaneous and work intuitively. I hope the plants had fun, too.
