EIKON, a magazine established in 1991 and published by the Austrian Institute of Photography and Media Art (Österreichisches Institut für Photographie und Medienkunst), based in the Museumsquartier Wien, views itself as a platform for Austrian and international artists from the fields of photography and media art.
EIKON is a bilingual magazine (German/English) published quarterly. A major feature of the magazine is its close collaboration with the presented artists, which is also reflected in the limited art editions published by EIKON (Edition EIKON). In addition, special issues are published on various occasions.
Having received a great deal of attention since its inception, EIKON Schauraum is a presentation platform in the heart of the Museumsquartier providing free access to Austrian and international photography and media art 24 hours daily.
Additionally, EIKON has assembled a comprehensive reference library, where visitors are free to browse more than 5,000 publications about topics such as photography, fine arts, art history, and technology.
