Michael Horowitz

Until 6 September 2020

The Viennese journalist, publisher, and author Michael Horowitz (*1950) began working as a photographer all the way back in 1966, while still a school student. And by the end of the 1980s, he had produced numerous photo reportages and portraits featuring well-known personalities from public life. The ALBERTINA Museum is now presenting a monographic exhibition that includes a first-ever selection of works from this creative phase. The emphasis here is on photographs from the Viennese cultural scene, with whose protagonists Horowitz was closely connected. He created relatively large series in collaboration with figures such as Helmut Qualtinger, Kiki Kogelnik, and the Gugging artists: these and other photos stand out by virtue of Horowitz’s emphatic gaze, his clear visual language, and his feel for highly expressive moments.

On view from 28 February until 6 September 2020.
