Upcoming exhibitions and events:

December 9, 2023, from 11 am – 3 pm: Opening of the exhibition “My father’s paradise” at my gallery www.hansweiss.com at Servitengasse 1, 1090 Vienna.

On display are photos of my father Johann Weiss from the period between 1931 and 1965 on the topics of village, family, self-portraits, portraits of men, portraits of women, war, and work. My father was a simple craftsman in a remote village in the western part of Austria, who was born in 1914 and died in 2002. At the age of 17, he bought a camera, began taking photographs and keeping a diary. At the beginning of his war diary, he posted a modified quote from the writer Jean Paul: „Fantasy is the only paradise from which we cannot be expelled.“
The musician Tobias Ennemoser will accompany the opening with his tuba. As usual, there will be a free buffet with drinks. The exhibition will last until the end of February, 2024.

The gallery is open every Saturday from 11am – 1pm and every Tuesday from 5 pm – 7 pm.
