About the project

Historic photographs of the Salzkammergut region, either visual documentation of everyday life, various celebrations or landscape photographs by well-known and unknown photographers will be collected. In doing so, it is not only a matter of works from a variety of archives (e.g. Trautenfels/Johanneum); the inhabitants of the Salzkammergut region will also be asked to make private historical photos available.

The historical motifs presented are intended to serve international artists as inspiration for the current era to work with the Salzkammergut region of today in photographic-artistic form as a geopolitical space. Photography will be used as an artistic means of expression to create new interpretative, sociocritical, comparative or ideological-political works with an eye on the historical motifs.

Photography is used as a means of artistic expression to recreate interpretative, socio-critical, comparative or ideological-political works with a view to the historical motifs. Special attention is paid to the works’ relation to the region and its inhabitants.

Subsequently at the Mozarteum Salzburg September until the end of the year 2024.
