At the suggestion of Dagmar Gordon (ideenmanufaktur) over 80 works by Austrian photographers were auctioned in WestLicht on the 27th September. The works came from greats such as Valie Export, Christine de Grancy, Franz Hubmann, Erich Lessing, Elfie Semotan, Gerhard Trumler, Harry Weber as well as countless others. Auctioneer Niki Schauerhuber encouraged the green-dominated public to outbid each other leading to hammer prices which were sometimes 5 times the starting price. The proceeds of 26,600 Euros will be used for the benefit of the Green Party’s Immigrant Advisory Service / Airport Social Service.
