For nearly a decade the renowned Viennese visual artist promotes his ingenious, cinematographic concept as a means of presentation for photography.

Since its premier during the “Vienna’s Festival for Fashion and Photography” in 2008, Dürr already brought his photographic art concept to various prestigious locations, such as the Zeiss Planetarium at The Prater, the Albertina Museumssäle, both in his hometown Vienna, as well as the Soravia Art Center in Skopje and the Austrian Cultural Forum in London.

On the evening of the 9th of September, following an invitation of MQ’s artistic management, Dürr’s Cinema Photographique” can be experienced for the first time on the big open air screen in the central court of MuseumsQuartier. On the occasion the Austrian photographer will be supported by a number of visual artists, among them world famous creatives such as the Dutch Viviane Sassen

as well as the newcomer Markus Jans from Germany – whose contributions will give an exclusive preview on the next issue of “Mann”, a new monthly publication by ZeitMagazin.

What unites them, is that their visual style matches Dürr’s own imagery and has to some extent appeared in his works.

This time his part originates from a collaboration with the Austrian musician Colacoaster, featuring pictures of the album cover shooting in Sicily.
