UNDER PRESSURE - MUSEUM OF MODERN ART MÖNCHSBERG SALZBURG

After Jeux de la Francophonie in Nice where I (sent from the Austrian Minsitry of Foreign Affairs and the Cultural Forum Paris) represented Austria in the cultural competition "photography") - it's now my pleasure to invite you to the upcoming exhibition "Under Pressure" at Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg in Salzburg, Austria. Running from November 1st until March 2nd 2014 the show concentrates on politics in contemporary photography.

From my side, the exhibition will show several framed photographs (some of which are part of the Austrian State Collection, others loaned), the interview-video of contemporary WW2 witness, Henri Lavrillat, I recorded last year,... "Autrement on devient fou....." (Otherwise you go crazy) will premiere in MdM.

As much as I'm looking forward to this exhibition I also look forward to the Artist Walk on February 23rd 2014, 3pm to which I kindly invite you to. It would be great to see you all there, talk about the project and answer questions. All the best, and hoping to see you there and soon.
