    Parliament: A photographic index

    We live in an age of omnipresent and calculated images; what opportunity do photographers have to approach a historically charged prestigious building without the risk of being instrumentalized? Is it possible that photographs and artistic work in an empty building can say more than that the building is temporarily no longer used for its original purpose?

    In a cooperation project of the University of Applied Arts Vienna with the Directorate of the Austrian Parliament, students of the Department of Applied Photography and Time-Based Media had the opportunity to investigate the historic building shortly after the parliament had moved out, and to find answers to these questions.

    The result is a photographic investigation about interaction of architecture, art and politics. 782 images from the Austrian parliament building in vacancy, printed in web-fed offset on newsprint.
