The exhibition program of Camera Austria specifically addresses current image-political issues and features significant contributions by artists, many of whom are being shown in Austria for the first time. The individual projects repeatedly involve debates that are of relevance to society, with images (also photographic ones) continuing to play a central role, especially in the organization of visibilities.
In parallel, the magazine Camera Austria International has been providing its readers with insights into current discourses on the role of photography as a practice of contemporary art—presenting outstanding artists who have made extraordinary contributions to the continual development of the medium. Exhibition catalogues and books published in the Edition Camera Austria, the biannual Camera Austria Award for Contemporary Photography by the City of Graz, which is awarded since 1989, the Photo Archive Pierre Bourdieu, and a comprehensive library complement the activities and the range of Camera Austria.
