Curated by Ruth Horak
The exhibition curated by Ruth Horak marking the 30th anniversary of the Friedl Kubelka School of Artistic Photography in Vienna illustrates in an exemplary way how artists from within the ambit of this private school think of photography both as an image and a medium, and what their personal tribute to the medium looks like.
In 1990, when Friedl Kubelka founded the School of Artistic Photography, photography was in the process of consolidating its status as an artistic discipline. Since then, some 170 teachers have been contracted to pass on their personal working methods, motifs and materials to around 580 students.Each year brings with it the many diverse facets of photography: those of 1990 different to those of 2010, with Anja Manfredi took over as the school's new director.
What remains the same is the fascination for a medium whose applications are more diverse today than ever before, a medium that is both sophisticated and banal, elaborately produced or incidental; a medium that belongs to everyday life, but also to science and art, and therefore always needs to be re-evaluated, sounding out where photography begins, how far it extends, and what influence its omnipresence has on artistic photography.

In this exhibition the FOTOHOF archive presents the newly discovered and now for the first time exhibited late work of the important British-Austrian photographer Edith Tudor-Hart. She took the photographs in the early 1950s and published them in a two-volume pedagogical introductory work on early school education entitled "Moving and Growing" (London 1952). In this work, the elements determining her life - the upbringing of children and socially engaged photography - come together in one work.
Edith Tudor-Hart comes from a secularized Jewish family in Vienna and her first professional training was as a kindergarten teacher with a special interest in modern, enlightened pedagogy. She also took Montessori courses in London. Later she turned to photography and after studies at the Viennese „Graphische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt“ and at the „Bauhaus Dessau“ she went into exile in London to work very successfully as a photographer. Edith Tudor-Hart's brother is the photographer and filmmaker Wolf Suschitzky (1912 - 2016), whose life's work is also kept in the FOTOHOF archive.
