Issue no.24 of the photographic magazine ‘Camera Austria’ dedicated to the “Symposium on Photography VIII” took the theme of “Image : Text” to coincide with the “steirischer herbst” festival at the Forum Stadtpark Graz in October 1986.
The artists invited to participate were asked to provide a work consisting of image and text. Over and above the combination of text and image as such, the two components were to take the form of autonomous forms of communication.
The magazine includes essays by Hubertus von Amelunxen, Regina Carstensen, Peter Dressler, Allen Ginsberg, Frieda Grafe, Bodo Hell, John Hilliard, Tim Starl and a co-authored text by Albert Oehlen and Martin Kippenberger on pages 65-80.
Their contributions takes the form of a diary written during their visit to Rio de Janeiro (from 15 December to 22 March 1986) in German and English combined with nine coloured illustrations of photocollages created in Rio.
