Anna Auer: Institute for Photography in Austria

In 1994, Anna Auer and her co-authors presented the Federal Ministry of Education and Art/Dept. 4.3 in Vienna with a concept for the establishment of an “Institute for Photography in Austria” to function as a data base and documentation centre.

This was followed by numerous other concepts for a “Museum/Research Centre for Photography in Vienna” that, unfortunately, never came to fruition.
