In 1996, the collective at FOTOGALERIE WIEN began with solo exhibitions dedicated to Austrian artists, who contributed substantially to the development of fine art photography and new media in this country
Since then, this concept with the title WERKSCHAU, has become an annual focal point of the exhibition program.
The presentations are conceptualized as retrospectives and are developed in collaboration with the artists.
The WERKSCHAU series offers the opportunity to recognize outstanding accomplishments on the on hand, and at the same time, the WERKSCHAU provides a historic overview of previous artistic discourses and trends.

A catalog is published to accompany each WERKSCHAU exhibition. Additionally, since 2002, a limited WERKSCHAU edition is being offered.
