Inaccessible landscapes, sealed-off territories or restricted military areas: Gregor Sailer's works depict surreal architectures at the margins of human civilization.

The artist is interested in the structural transformation of landscape and the complex political, military and economic implications of architecture. This takes him to remote, inhospitable parts of the world, Potemkin villages, and places that few people can reach. Sailer's photographs are devoid of people, and the buildings in them often look like sculptures. Whether climate change, political conflicts, or an excessive need for security, Sailer's images reveal the dynamics that lead to the existence of these places.

KUNST HAUS WIEN dedicates its first major exhibition in Austria to the photo artist. Sailer's images open up access to the world of fakes, copies and backdrops and question these sometimes absurd excesses of our contemporary society. Gregor Sailer's works require months of research work and stays under extreme conditions, for example in the Arctic at minus 50 degrees. The Tyrolean artist, born in 1980, has received numerous awards, his photographs have been shown in numerous publications and exhibitions, and are represented in public and private collections.

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Vienna’s first “green” museum dedicates large special exhibitions to contemporary photography. Again and again, thematic photographic exhibitions also focus on ecology and sustainability. In the “Garage”, various projects are shown that today are at the interface between art and nature – an aspect that museum founder Hundertwasser had already anchored in his work.
