Events • GoSee Tip : ‘SUB-MERGE Visions of the Mind, Nature and Technology’ – online print sale from 7 thru 16 December, 2020, with photographs by Ed Atkins, Harley Weir, Cédric Kouamé or Elizaveta Porodina for the British Mental Health Charity

09.12.2020 • London-based creative studio Emulsion presents SUB-MERGE: a photographic examination of the relationship between mental health, art and technology. Based on topics such as art, nature and perceptions of reality, artists including Ed Atkins, Harley Weir, Cédric Kouamé and Elizaveta Porodina each contributed a print motif. This gives shoppers the chance to purchase a wonderful print (100 £ plus shipping & packaging) and do good at the same time because proceeds from sales go to the charity organization Mind.

“We invited image makers who use technology to explore the worlds merged in our sub-conscious,” says Nick Hadfield and Creative Director Mikey Opie O’Grady from Emulsion. “We hope it will open a broader dialogue around the relationship between technology, ‘reality’ and the mind… At this time of year, the sense of loneliness and isolation is more desperate and tangible than ever before.”

SUB-MERGE is a reaction to one of our generation’s biggest challenges – our relationship with technology. Using photography in its broadest sense, we aim to encourage innovative and creative uses...

Events • Record numbers ! For the first time, more than 300,000 visitors came together at FESTIVAL LA GACILLY-BADEN PHOTO by Director and initiator Lois Lammerhuber, which took place from 14 July THRU 26 October, 2020, in Baden near Vienna

06.12.2020 • The magic – of 33 visual narratives told with 2000 photographs on up to 280 m² screens – has transformed the garden, narrow streets and plazas of Baden into a city of images for the third consecutive time. Themed upon ‘Nothing is Quiet on the Eastern Front’, the public space became the setting for a synthesis of the arts and Europe’s largest open-air gallery. Record results make for optimistic perspectives in the future: In 2021, the festival will embrace the topic ‘VIVA LATINA!’ with photography in and from Latin America.

The festival theme NOTHING IS QUIET ON THE EASTERN FRONT dealt with our neighbors to the east. Looking back on the emergence of the East Bloc is a wonderful example of how the winds of freedom unleashed glasnost and perestroika 30 years ago, and by doing so, brought modernization to the social, political and economic system of the Soviet Union. This led to the end of the Cold War and to a remarkable creative momentum of contemporary photography in Russia and the succession states of the former USSR, which the festival has appropriately honored and...

The festival has been organized by Tyrol-born and New York-based trumpeter Franz Hackl since back in 1993. The photos show Marie and Markus Finkler, Peter Oswald, Thorsten Wilrodt and, of course, Franz Hackl.

Since 1993, musicians have been invited to the festival each year to teach participants on one hand but also to make music together in different formations. Embracing the ethos ‘Boost the Taste of Everyone", big names from the jazz and rock world, DJs and music producers come together in Schwaz to bring people what they refer to as ‘living music’. The musical program of the Outreach Festival is aimed at offering original and distinctive content. This eclectic mix is meanwhile appreciated by festival visitors from all over Austria.
