MICHAEL HOROWITZ. About Stars and Nearness in Photography

Category: Exhibition 24. March 2020

The Albertina’s exhibition about Austrian photographer Michael Horowitz has his works from two decades on display. The images focus on the icons of the art and culture scene in Austria. There is a half-naked young Arnold Schwarzenegger in the legendary Café Hawelka in Vienna, the meeting point of Vienna’s artistis avant-garde. There is Andy Warhol putting make-up on a model during a commissioned work in Vienna, and there is the author Thomas Bernhard on a bicycle – in the basement of his farmhouse in Upper Austria.

Horowitz started his career as a photogrpaher at the age of fourteen, at the age of eighteen he photographed Kiki Kogelnik in New York. He was close friends with Helmut Qualtinger. He always managed to establish a close relationship with his models, favourable conditions for the sometimes bizarre scenarios in which he would capture his models. Especially in our days of an overload of selfie portraits, Michael Horowitz’ incredibly expressive black and white photographs are still impressive, coming across as glimpses of an era long gone.
