The Austrian Camera Prize for Contemporary Photography will be awarded to Belinda Kazem Kaminski this year. The writer and visual artist is honored by her work, which is closely linked to research and questioning of colonial history and its legacy. The jury praised the artist’s work as the result of meticulous research, “the works are as haunting as they are poetic, deliberately extroverted, at times fragile and virtual.”
Belinda Kazem Kaminski was born in Vienna in 1980 and when she studied international development at the University of Vienna, she focused on black feminist theories and postcolonialism. Her short film “Unearthing. In Conversation” was shown in Diagonale, among others.
The Camera Austria Prize is awarded in the amount of €15,000 and is awarded every two years.
