Beginning with the historic work of photographer Dora Kallmus (Atelier d’Ora) the “Fashion Moments” exhibition presents works by Austrian women photographers working at the interface between art and fashion photography. The exhibition makes reference to works of global significance to explore both the tension between commercial commissioned work in the context of the fashion industry and contemporary artistic practice as well as the points of contact between them. The exhibition also addresses the construction of role models, gender issues and stereotypes in fashion photography, thereby also raising questions surrounding the social significance of photography and advertising in the area of contemporary fashion pictures.
“Fashion Moments. Women Photographers in Focus” is the first museum exhibition to focus on contemporary artistic creativity in Austria combining photography and fashion. The “female” view at the interface between fashion, art and photography in its multiple facets is explored within the exhibition. In selected series, the artists represented address themes such as eroticism, ideal body images and the ambivalence of beauty, woman as an object, marks of time and transience. A recurring theme in the works, despite the wide variety of conceptions, are their references to the history of art.
