Photon Gallery Vienna was opened in 2013 as an extension of the main gallery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. We mainly focus on networking and the promotion of our Central, Eastern European, and Austrian artists. Our international cooperation with various institutions, fairs, and festivals led to the networking of the art scene in Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, and the states of the former Yugoslavia.
Photon aims to build a strong transnational network that brings institutions and individuals, active in the field of contemporary photography and video art, together.
At the beginning of 2020, the gallery in Vienna transformed into some kind of hybrid space. The premises are now used by several creative art and photography associations, under the name CLUSTER – Creative Coworking Space.
This hybrid space includes a photo studio and a darkroom in the basement, and a store and a café on the first floor.
CLUSTER is a space where theory and practice, production and exhibition, and learning and practice, all connect.
