Annual Program

FOTOGALERIE WIEN PROGRAM: JANUARY 2020 – JANUARY 2021

Main focus 2019/21: RITUALS

The main focus 2019/20 on the theme of Rituals in photography, video and installation is represented in four exhibitions (September, December 2019 / March, June 2020). Rituals are an important component in human expression and communication behaviours and tell us much about the values, the understanding of roles and social interactions where they often assume a regulatory and supportive function. The complexity of the substantive issues and the great importance of rituals for humanity inspired the curatorial team of the FOTOGALERIE WIEN to put a focal point on this theme with a series of four exhibitions. The four exhibitions are concerned with social rituals and their associated networks of relationships; with rituals that articulate demonstrations of power, suppression and exclusion along with religious and other ceremonial rituals. In the course of this, the codes, behaviours and forms of communication related to the various rituals will be examined.
