What is central to these strategies is not primarily producing images but linking for the most part found pictures, or documenting complex processes or action contexts. Archives, history, spaces, travels, politics, and discourses play a role in this—photography as a cultural technique and as a cultural artifact that constructs a representation. In a remarkable and at international level exceptional manner, the work with photography done by many Austrian artists is marked by this analytical working method. For a generation of artists born as from the 1960s, this is a matter-of-course way to deal with a medium that can no longer be understood as primarily picturing and documenting.
