Elfriede Mejchar

The oeuvre of this great Austrian photographer is extensive and varied. Much of her work is regarded today as an icon of Austrian post-war photography and it has become an important testimony of the era.

Over the course of her decades of professional life — first as a photographer for the Federal Monuments Office and, after her official retirement, for the TU Wien as a photographer of industrial monuments — she always took a close look at everything else that came across her path, from car wrecks to hotel rooms, from wood huts to traffic mirrors. With her superior alertness, Elfriede Mejchar has recorded and brought to life what would seem insignificant or even ugly, the traces of humankind in nature and in urban space. Not to mention her exceptional photos of tulips and amaryllis. Here, too, she found the decisive point of view to take the observer beyond the façade of superficial beauty and to discover something sculptural.

The exhibition shows a selection of her extensive work.
