With LIVE LIKE THIS!, Camera Austria is presenting the first major solo exhibition of the Austrian artists, Sabine Bitter and Helmut Weber, who have already carried out important international projects and taken part in key exhibitions worldwide. Since 1994, they have seen their work as a critical reworking of images as representatives of cultural discourses. In terms of subjects, they direct their attention to spaces, architectures and urban constellations. With the aid of precisely constructed images as interventions into circumstances of representation, they investigate the changes arising from social conflicts and contradictions of modernism as they collide with contemporary forms of globalization. Especially set-up for Camera Austria, the exhibition creates a space for engaging with contemporary urban spaces as social environment and as political discourse – as a result, the relationships between architecture, visuality and representation, mediatization, politics and identity are reallocated in the exhibition space.

Curated by Reinhard Braun
