Mutations I - opening in Vienna on September 6, 2007

It was a rainy and cold evening outside, but the atmosphere inside was warm and friendly. Starting with a preview and introduction to the exhibition by photo theorist Ruth Horak and ending hours later with wine and Sachertorte, the opening at the MUSA was a wonderful final for the first common exhibition of the "European Month of Photography".

We had the pleasure to welcome many of the artists as well as partners and friends from the cities: standing from the left - Zuzana Lapitková (Month of Photography, Bratislava), Marie Gouriano, Thomas Licek (both Month of Photography, Vienna), Eva Frapiccini (artist, Rome), Berthold Ecker, Gunda Achleitner, Roland Fink (all Cultural Department of the City of Vienna), Nina Dick (artist, Vienna); sitting from the left: Philippe Ramette (artist, Paris), Carine Krecké (artist, Luxembourg), Barbara Wolffer (Maison Europeénne de la Photographie, Paris), Elisabeth Krecké (artist, Luxembourg), Pierre Stiwer (Café Creme, Luxembourg)
