Camera Austria International 128 out now

Playing through pictorial metaphors and aesthetic and semantic conventions, linking images in an associative-algorithmic manner based on structural characteristics, "poking" into apparent gaps, empty spaces and vulnerabilities in visual narratives—photographic strategies not connected by any clear or comprehensive context—are the main focus of interest in this issue of Camera Austria International. Viktoria Binschtok initially develops her... continue reading

REVIEWS

Ann Böttcher’s “Transmigrations (Bookshelves, a cannon emplacement and a Mercedes)”
GALERIE NORDENHAKE, Stockholm
Ann Böttcher, Transit Portal (The War Museum/Svinøya, Svolvær, Lofoten, NO), 2013.

Los Angeles has long been pursuing the economies of pink, but it has been pursuing a phantom. Pink is a non-existent wavelength of light. We cannot perceive it, but literally imagine it.

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

“I’m so excited,” a young woman says, about an advertising meeting that would make your eyes water with boredom. “Don’t worry, that’ll pass,” her older colleague replies. It’s a flat cliché, and he delivers it with a withering smile of self-congratulation. The woman appears put down, but you get the feeling that’s... continue reading
