Vienna has got a new centre for contemporary photography: OstLicht Gallery was opened on the premises of the Brotfabrik, Vienna’s latest, dynamically evolving cultural centre, in June 2012.
The loft offers approximately 500 m² of exhibition space for group and solo exhibitions of contemporary photo art, featuring both national and international positions.
The publicly accessible library of Galerie OstLicht comprises a collection of more than 20,000 books and magazines on the art and technology of photography as well as a selecion of photography magazines. Featuring also a bookshop and a bar, OstLicht intends to function as a meeting place and centre for everyone with an interest in photography.
The opening of OstLicht means that another art institution will be established at the still new cultural centre in the former Anker bread factory, where Ernst Hilger’s Brotkunsthalle, a branch of Lichterloh, artists’studios, and a Caritas workshop are located.
Architect Gregor Eichinger designed the rooms of OstLicht, taking the historical industrial architecture into consideration.
OstLicht is a new project by Peter Coeln, who has been successfully running the photo museum WestLicht since 2001; it shows high-quality international photo exhibitions alongside a permanent exhibition of historical cameras, and also hosts auctions of photographica which are well-known beyond the borders of Austria.
