Having presented outstanding artists and illuminated discourse on the practice of photography in contemporary art since 1980, the magazine Camera Austria International is an active archive. Still posed at the heart of this bilingual (ger./eng.) quarterly are the monographic contributions from artists whose work decisively defines current perspectives on photography. This is accompanied by the Forum section, which introduces—often in cooperation with curators, writers, or artists—remarkable positions by young international artists who are not yet well known but already display a unique profile. The profile of the magazine is rounded off by an overview of current international exhibitions and recently published books.

The exhibition program, which places a focus on solo exhibitions, usually presents long-term projects developed specifically for Camera Austria. The respective artistic positions shed light on important image-political issues and cover a broad, multilayered spectrum of research on the photographic image: specters of archives, questions related to knowledge production, the construction of identities, artistic research, feminist critique, the reconstruction of history, and the erosion of social utopias. The common frame of these positions and projects may well lie in maintaining the social relevance of the photographic image, rather than in merely examining its cultural role.
