Opening Lucca Chmel
For the “Month of Photography,” WestLicht opened a show of Austrian architectural photography. The exhibition “Lucca Chmel. Architectural Photography 1945 – 1970” was conceived of as a joint project with the Austrian National Library (ÖNB). The two curators, Uwe Schögl, deputy director and Gabriele Hofer, free-lancer at the ÖNB, explain their work with the estate of photographer Lucca Chmel to the public at the opening. Chmel died in 1999. After a speech by the ÖNB general director, Johanna Rachinger, the exhibition was officially opened.
