In January 2012, the exhibition the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers will travel from Berlin to Graz, Austria, where it will be shown in the exhibition rooms of Camera Austria.
Since 1980 Camera Austria International magazine has been fostering debate on the role of photography as situated between art and mass medium, between aesthetics and social practice, between discourse and the documentary, politics and imagery. The horizon of photography is also constantly being discussed anew through exhibition projects since 1975. Camera Austria funds parts of the production of the exhibition the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers. The December issue of the magazine includes a focus on the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers.
