This exhibition probes the manifold interrelations between space and photography. In the early days of photography, questions of technical feasibility were pressing and creative possibilities beckoned; beginning in the 1960s, artists expanded the scope of their engagement with “space” to include social and conceptual issues. The exhibition presents works by thirty-five artists created between 1860 and today: from a walk-in camera obscura in which the lights of Salzburg’s old town are transmuted into a projected image to Hito Steyerl’s installation How Not to Be Seen (2013).
