Evil Emperors

An Exhibition in the coin collection

12/11/201928/02/2021

The exhibition is open for guided tours only.

KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM WIEN

Maria-Theresien-Platz,
1010 Wien

The image of Roman emperors transmitted by classical tradition continues to influence how we see and judge them today. Our view of Roman emperors is strongly affected by how classical tradition depicts them – Caligula, Nero or Commodus, for instance, are poster-boys for megalomania. For posterity is the final arbiter of a ruler’s life and deeds, deeming them benign or evil regardless of his assertions and efforts.
The exhibition confronts statements and appraisals from classical antiquity – some of them contemporary, some written down several generations after the emperor’s death – with coinage. The two sources differ greatly in their origins and how they were formed and have very different aims. At times, they seem to clash and are difficult to reconcile. Although most of what we know about the history of classical antiquity is based on them, this reflects the gulf that separates personal opinions from official accounts.

The exhibition examines clichés and anecdotes and tries to illustrate them with coins selected from the holdings of the Coin Cabinet, one of the largest and most important collections in the world comprising around 600.000 objects including 90.000 Roman coins. The choice of rulers runs from murderous Caligula and Nero, the arsonist of Rome, to the persecutors of Christians, to Julian the Apostate, thus, well into the fourth century AD.

Permanent exhibition

1/01/202031/12/2021

Architekturzentrum Wien

MuseumsQuartier, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien

The “a_show” is the permanent exhibition of the Az W. It offers a compact overview of the development and history of the architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries in Austria along with a unique view of 150 years of architectural production.

In ten episodes the most relevant phenomena and tendencies are shown, while still leaving room for autonomous positions. Starting with Vienna’s growth into an imperial metropolis, the exhibition brings visitors into the field of tension between socio-political experiment, the “conquest” of areas of alpine landscape, the interwoven power structures of the Nazi period, and the rebuilding programme after 1945.

Modernism, experiments and crises
The year 1958 is significant for the development of architecture in Austria. At that time a number of key buildings were completed which signalised the somewhat late arrival of international modernism. Subsequently space travel, the worldwide ascendancy of pop culture and mass media made an impact on the production of architecture. The oil crisis in 1973 brought an abrupt end to utopian concepts, while at the same time marking the start of a variety of experiments in both formal and constructional terms. Current positions from throughout Austria are an important part of the exhibition and are presented in digital form.

The Renaissance of Etching

From Dürer to Bruegel

12/02/20201/11/2020

Albertina

Albertinaplatz 1, 1010 Wien

The early days of printmaking were punctuated by several important innovations that ended up giving rise to a multitude of technical processes by 1500. In this context, the emergence of the etching during the late 15th century along with its subsequent swift spread during the early 16th century represents one of the most important turning points. Following development of this technique’s basic elements in the workshops of armor decorators, German printmaker Daniel Hopfer began using etched (i.e., acid treated) metal plates to produce prints on paper. Etching proved so easy to do that artists from the most varied fields found themselves able to produce their own prints— and among this new medium’s pioneers were central artistic figures of the Renaissance such as Albrecht Dürer, Parmigianino, and Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

The present exhibition at the ALBERTINA Museum focuses on the first 70 years of the etched print: from its beginnings in Dürer’s time to Breugel’s era, which already saw numerous famous and less-famous artists in Germany, Flanders, Italy, and France working in this technique. Approximately 125 etchings will be shown along with drawings, printing plates, and illustrated books.

This exhibition has been conceived in cooperation with the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

In 2020, the Belvedere will be showcasing the work of multimedia artist Renate Bertlmann for the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019 as part of the CARLONE CONTEMPORARY series: a field of red knife-roses. The installation will feature sensuous flowers made of Murano glass paired with razor-sharp blades emerging from the buds. This juxtaposition of fragility and aggression mirrors the duality found in the frescoes of the Carlone Hall at the Belvedere.

Josef Trattner: Inside Out

28/02/202023/12/2020

TUE–FF 9.00–17.00

Österreichische Friedrich und Lillian Kiesler-Privatstiftung

Mariahilfer Straße 1b/1, 1060 Wien

The interdisciplinary working artist Josef Trattner has been working with the material foam for many years and realizes projects in public space using this material. An essential characteristic of his works is the overlapping of art-immanent aspects – the relationship of materiality, form and colour to interior and exterior space – with social issues. His ephemeral stagings in natural and urban spaces, which dissolve into nothing again after being changed by the public and weather influences, are always also social experimental arrangements that are inscribed with a self-reflexive and critical potential.
Exclusively for the Friedrich Kiesler Foundation a room sculpture with the dimensions 3 x 3 x 3 meters was realized, which can be used by the audience. Models, photos and a film documenting the creation of the sculpture will also be shown.

ALLES WAR KLAR

Opening Exhibition

7/03/20201/11/2020

Künstlerhaus

Karlsplatz 5, 1010 Wien

EVERYTHING WAS KLAR deals with how the institutional routines of the last 150 years of the Künstlerhaus’ history can be repeatedly questioned. Visitors* are invited on a tour through a total of seven exhibition rooms, following a carefully developed dramaturgy. A cycle of metamorphosis and at the same time catharsis of the newly established institution will close until the distinction and value of past and future gradually dissolve. The exhibition provides visitors with both intellectually challenging contexts and immediate, sensual effects.

Museumsplatz 1,

“I was reflecting that most people thought the Factory was a place where everybody had the same attitudes about everything; the truth was, we were all odds-and-ends misfits, somehow misfitting together.” (Andy Warhol)

Pluralistic diversity has been governing the methodical understanding of Pop Art, Minimal Art and Conceptual Art since the 1960s. Referencing Mel Bochner’s article “The Serial Attitude” (1967) and the show Serial Formations (1967), curated by Paul Maenz and Peter Roehr, the collection exhibition MISFITTING TOGETHER explores the serial order as the connective tissue between these three movements. The presentation demonstrates how strongly they have influenced each other and how hard it is to pigeonhole them art-historically.

In their “mutual nonconformity,” the works in MISFITTING TOGETHER represent the basis for this fall’s Warhol exhibitions, ANDY WARHOL EXHIBITS a glittering alternative and DEFROSTING THE ICEBOX. Guesting at mumok: The Hidden Collections of the Antiques Collection of Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien and Weltmuseum Wien.

Andy Warhol’s last exhibition at mumok was in 1981, when he was still alive. Some forty years later, it is long overdue to present his oeuvre in a comprehensive art-historical context. This is why MISFITTING TOGETHER not only situates Warhol in the field of Pop Art but also paints a more nuanced picture of the times by including works of Minimal and Conceptual Art—all of which are collection emphases of Peter and Irene Ludwig.

Artists: Lutz Bacher, Alighiero Boetti, Daniel Buren, Hanne Darboven, Jan Dibbets, Heinz Gappmayr, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Dóra Maurer, Claes Oldenburg, Friederike Pezold, Larry Poons, Charlotte Posenenske, Peter Roehr, Robert Smithson, Daniel Spoerri, Andy Warhol

Albertina Modern

Karlsplatz 5, 1010 Wien

First-Ever Comprehensive Overview of Austrian Art History

The opening exhibition of ALBERTINA MODERN, entitled The Beginning. Art in Austria, 1945 to 1980, offers the first-ever comprehensive overview of a period that numbers among Austrian art history’s most innovative. On exhibit are the most important artistic stances situated at the threshold of postmodernism—from the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism to early abstraction, Viennese Actionism, kinetic and concrete art, Austria’s own version of pop art, and the socially critical realism so characteristic of Vienna. The Beginning accords the towering, singular figures of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Arnulf Rainer, and Maria Lassnig their own separate rooms. And just what sculpture and object art were capable of during this period becomes clear in masterpieces by artists ranging from Joannis Avramidis and Rudolf Hoflehner to Wander Bertoni and Roland Goeschl and on to Curt Stenvert, Bruno Gironcoli, and Cornelius Kolig.
Viennese Avant-Garde
This exhibition presents works by a total of nearly 100 artists from this almost thirty-year period. And both the way in which these works attempt to come to terms with the Austrofascist state and National Socialism and the international networking engaged in by virtually all of their creators represent characteristics of this Viennese avant-garde that have frequently been overlooked in the past. This exhibition is based on the holdings of the Albertina Museum, which have now been greatly enriched by the acquisition of the Essl Collection. But an exhibition project of this ambition and magnitude, with its approximately 360 objects, also depends on the support of numerous lenders: artists, private collectors, and museums.

Ongoing Permanent Collection

1/07/202031/12/2021

Oberes Belvedere

Prinz Eugen-Straße 27

The Belvedere’s collection comprises several thousands of works from nine centuries. The museum’s permanent collection throws a fresh and exciting light on artworks by artists like Rueland Frueauf the Elder, Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Gustav Klimt, Erika Giovanna Klien, Egon Schiele, Helene Funke, and Oskar Kokoschka.

The Belvedere’s extensive collection covers art from the Middle Ages to the present, including the world’s largest collections of paintings by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller and Gustav Klimt and the Character Heads by Franz Xaver Messerschmidt. The Upper Belvedere’s display concept offers fresh approaches to these masterpieces of art.

The concept includes innovative thematic rooms, interspersing the chronological hanging through the periods of art and sparking a multi-layered dialogue between the classics of art history and contemporary artists, for example Erwin Wurm and Christian Philipp Müller. The rooms revolve around questions concerning Austrian history, its identity, and its art. In this exciting interaction between past and present, old favourites can be rediscovered in a new context.

The tempestuous history of the Belvedere has been allotted its own section in the exhibition covering Prince Eugene’s building of the palaces, the foundation of the museum, the signing of the Austrian State Treaty, and its role today as a modern museum.

The Batliner Collection

Albertina

Albertinaplatz 1, 1010 Wien

The ALBERTINA Museum’s permanent collection has been completely restructured. The Albertina houses one of Europe’s most important compilations of Modernist art in the form of the Batliner Collection.
Its exhibition starts off with such artists of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism as Degas, Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin. Further highlights include examples of German Expressionism, with the groups of Brücke and Der Blaue Reiter, and the art of New Objectivity, with works by Wacker, Sedlacek, and Hofer. An in-depth focus on Austrian art comprises works by Kokoschka and paintings by Egger-Lienz. The great diversity of the Russian avant-garde is represented by paintings by Goncharova, Malevich, and Chagall.

The ALBERTINA Museum welcomes the Othmar Huber Collection for an appearance as part of the permanent presentation. A selection of 15 works from the collection of Swiss ophthalmologist Othmar Huber (1892-1979) is being presented, giving rise to a dialogue between these two outstanding accumulations of classical modernist art.

The focus of this encounter between key modernist masterpieces is on German Expressionism as well as the early Bauhaus movement with works by Marc, Macke, Wassily and Klee. Furthermore, two important paintings by Picasso—the Sleeping Drinker (1902) and Head of a Woman (1963), presented together with the ALBERTINA Museum’s own rich Picasso holdings—round out this special guest appearance. The exhibited works are on loan from the Othmar Huber Foundation, kept at Kunstmuseum Bern, and the Kunsthaus Glarus.

The spacious halls of the Permanent Collection were redesigned by contemporary artists in order to present selected highlights from the MAK Collection. In a unique interplay of artistic heritage and contemporary interventions, the historical holdings have been staged in a way that invites close examination of the individual exhibits.
This presentation’s thematic core is the multifarious struggle to arrive at an Austrian, modern, bourgeois, and democratic style. Today, this chapter of design and arts and crafts history—subsumed under the terms of Secessionism and Jugendstil—serves like no other to underpin Austrian identity.

With Suellen Rocca’s installation in the Grafisches Kabinett, the Secession is pleased and grateful to present the last exhibition the artist conceived herself, which has been realized posthumously with great respect for her work. New paintings and drawings are presented together with paintings from recent years in a setting composed of a folding screen and a simple bed that cites Rocca’s pictorial vocabulary. Presenting the actual objects next to their figurative representations blurs the lines between exhibition and pictorial space and supports the sensation of virtually being able to step into the pictures’ landscapes.

After Us, the Flood

16/09/202014/02/2021

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Untere Weißgerber Straße 13, 1030 Wien

As a Green Museum, KUNST HAUS WIEN regularly dedicates major photographic presentations to key ecological themes. The main exhibition in autumn presents a selection of artistic positions that focus on the effects of climate change on the ecosystem. The works in the exhibition show and analyse the impact the global climate crisis has on glaciers, sea and marine regions, considering both scientific and political aspects. The images of disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increasingly acidified oceans and desertificated land areas are not least emotionally touching, and once again bear witness to the urgency of the topic.

Nach uns die Sintflut [After Us, the Flood] brings together current photographic and cinematic work by 21 international and domestic artists. Their works, often the result of extensive research and close collaborations with leading scientists, throw into relief the ecological effects our way of life has on different regions of the earth. Some also highlight its socio-political and social consequences, or outline future scenarios. The artists draw attention to people in those regions already most affected by the consequences of climate change, and illustrate the global connections between our lifestyle and the ecological, social and economic problems we face.

Artists: Benoit Aquin, Ursula Biemann, Axel Braun, Solmaz Daryani, Verena Dengler, Michael Goldgruber, Justin Brice Guariglia, Stephan Huber, Genoveva Kriechbaum, Anouk Kruithof, Bénédicte Kurzen, Douglas Mandry, Benedikt Partenheimer, Sarker Protick, Gabriele Rothemann, Anastasia Samoylova, Christina Seely, Nicole Six & Paul Petritsch, Frank Thiel, Angela Tiatia

KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM WIEN

Maria-Theresien-Platz,
1010 Wien

The exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna brings Beethoven into dialogue with artists like Friedrich, Goya, Rodin, Horn, Baldessari and Sehgal.
The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna presents, in cooperation with the Archive of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna, an unusual homage to Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827).

His universal and unique reception, the epochal significance of his music, but also the perception of his deified persona, create numerous entry points; high and popular culture, commerce and politics all form an inexhaustible reservoir for inspiration and appropriation.

The exhibition brings together paintings by Caspar David Friedrich, sketchbooks by J. M. W. Turner, graphic works by Francisco de Goya, Anselm Kiefer and Jorinde Voigt, sculptures by Auguste Rodin, Rebecca Horn and a new work developed for the exhibition by Tino Sehgal, a video by Guido van der Werve and much more, all of which are brought into dialogue with the music and persona of Beethoven. The exhibition will thus build a bridge with the present: masterpieces of fine art form connections with music and silence.

GALERIE LAYR VIENNA

Seilerstätte 2/26, 1010 Wien

LAYR is pleased to present an exhibition by the American artist Gaylen Gerber which features his early Untitled paintings exhibited with his more recent Support paintings.

In the mid and late 1980s and early 1990s, Gerber made uniformly sized square canvases that contain almost imperceptible still life paintings painted in three values of gray on gray grounds. The longer one looks, the more the underlying image conditionally emerges. Untitled, and undated, these paintings can seem like flat or closed surfaces, but they are not only unexpectedly nuanced but also inclusive, continuous, and assert their place in the present.

In combination with the early Untitled paintings, Gerber exhibits a number of more recent Support paintings, in this case – oil paint over 19th and 20th century marble and bronze sculptures, artifacts, and oil paintings by other makers. In doing so he underscores many of the archetypes and motifs that populate our unconscious, often with profound implications. For example, Support, n.d., builds on a lush 19th century painting of a floral still life after the Dutch artist Jan van Huysum, who, in his work, insisted on closely scrutinizing the world around him. Gerber’s work expresses a similar critical observation of our surroundings and his concealment of one surface conveys an unexpected fluidity with what in turn another reveals.

ALONA RODEH | The Long Stretch

Opening days: Friday, October 9, 11 am – 8 pm | Saturday, October 10, 11 am – 4 pm
through December 23, 2020

Alona Rodeh’s first solo exhibition at Christine König Galerie, Vienna is an attempt to raise awareness through uncovering narratives of pseudo-secure regulations such as order, gate control, search tactics, traffic monitoring, suspension and exclusivity – be they public or private, concrete or abstract in form. Flickering in the dark, autonomous from any external light source, her works equivalently merge into an installation- and light-based Gesamtkunstwerk while keeping their idiosyncratic status.

Alona Rodeh’s interests in architecture, infrastructure, urbanism, light, design and industrial processes become evident in her careful choice of materials and their accompanying color palette: lightboxes with animal caretakers as protagonists, sound pieces passing coded communication, quasi ready-made objects, security gates and the history of bollard morphology are among other signs and works within a staged parkour.

Often referred to as performances without performers the artist’s installations give attention not only to the inhabiting objects, but to the space in-between. “Full of emptiness”, as the artist puts it, “The Long Stretch” may be read as a forecast – not of the future, but of the present tense. In it, Alona Rodeh functions as a manipulator, guiding our bodies through a space that is narrated through our movement in it. It is a broken, individual, heterogeneous narrative, one that raises questions of how and within what conditions to live and work. Its openness is linked to our – in many ways scattered and free but also restricted and bound – century.

Fotogalerie Wien

Währinger Straße 59/WUK, 1090 Wien

NO MEDIA BEYOND THIS POINT – this is Günther Selichar’s appeal to his audience to see consciously and critically the influence of media-mediated images or guided information. Using terms such as OBSERVING SYSTEMS or EMBEDDED [journalist], Selichar creates tags that define the theoretical framework for his examination of phenomena related to the mass media.
(…) In times when photographs are almost exclusively consumed as JPEGs on small displays, one level in Selichar’s work is particularly noteworthy: the materialization of photographs in complex production steps, with high-end reproduction processes and selected materials. They make the image a multidimensional work, in contrast to the one-dimensional JPEG on the screen. (Ruth Horak)

FRIDA ORUPABO

22/10/20209/01/2021

KOENIG2 by_robbygreif

Margaretenstraße 5, 1040 Wien

FRIDA ORUPABO born 1986 in Sarpsborg, Norway
lives and works in Oslo

The official-artistic career of Frida Orupabo developed out of the digital world of algorithms: she was working as a social worker for sex workers and victims forced into prostitution when Arthur Jafa came across her Instagram account @nemiepeba three years ago. It is certainly not a convenient aesthetic that operates Orupabo’s feed and that ultimately led her to the Venice Biennale in 2019, but rather a relentless confrontation with omnipresent historical and simultaneously contemporary sociological problems: gender, racism, post-colonialism, violence, identity. Since 2013 the Norwegian-Nigerian artist has collected almost archivally authentic visual evidence distributed in popular media, amongst them photographic and film records of colonial violence and images of women. The imaging sources are multi-faceted; they imply the establishment of an eternal flow of norms yet at the same time dismissing them. Orupabo decodes this ambiguity in her artistic work and scrutinises the existing images constructed by art history, science, pop culture and colonialism, not without evoking others at the same time. She integrates the public image into the self image and addresses herself to her own origin just as much as to the moral and ethical failures of humanity.

We see a hen mounted on the wall of the exhibition space, made movable by means of paper clips, independent of the status of its vitality. It is a symbol for ritual and sustenance, abstracted from the immediate frame of reference of humans, who since time immemorial are accustomed to subjugate life forms without a second thought and to exploit them for their own good. This hierarchic compulsion does not even spare members of their own species. It is mostly such monochrome works that Frida Orupabo offers to us in the exhibition spaces. The complete denial of colour is thereby not based only on the lack of colour of the archival material or on aesthetic expediency, but instead is deliberately deployed in order to filter and manipulate fundamental essences and intensities. In a six-part photo work the artist directs our sight from seemingly abstract patterns from nature towards the unsparing documentation of an injection, that appears even more concrete in dialogue with the visually and cognitively mild abstractions. In this, we feel ourselves reminded of the fact that mankind has only ostensibly freed itself from nature; it continues to dominate via aspects beyond our control, such as disease. The human coping mechanism for this disempowerment from the outset has always been religion: the mediating question between mankind and nature, “jesus?”, reminds us not least of the enforced conversion to Christianity in large areas of the colonial territories.

In addition to black/white, there are also impact-suffused colours such as an intensive red – an uncompromising, active colour that additionally activates the subjects of the works as well as the performativity inherent in them. The colour accompanies us through the entire space and leads us to a large-scale photograph of a man, revised into a negative. His hat in his hand, he smiles at us in friendly fashion and one cannot avoid wondering what his story might be. Even without an answer one feels connected to him, and experiences the search, frequently revisited by Orupabo, for the relationship between foreign identity and one’s own identity. The fact that this relationship in many cases is not at all comfortable is demonstrated by a video work installed on the floor: due to the placement the viewer is forced to look down on the groups represented there. This metaphorical staging of perspective taxes our conscience; as in involuntary agent, one becomes a protagonist of an unavoidable situation of discrimination.

In her works, Orupabo introduces almost untold yet ubiquitous narratives that unite the various dimensions of time and reality with one another. This multidimensionality is based not only on the appropriated visual material; instead, Orupabo’s works far rather constitute their own proper time that relates to consensual perception. They compel one to look, and return it generally unequivocally; they inscribe themselves irreversibly on our memory and grasp at the collective (un)known. They trigger individually electrifying, emotional chains of association, independent of the personal socio-cultural background; the sum of these chains ultimately coalesces in the works into an unending reception platform that is not dissimilar to the internet. Frida Orupabo’s work is timeless, constantly changing, reflecting not only the ephemeral exhibition spaces but also more permanent ways of thinking.

Želimir Žilnik. Shadow Citizens

24/10/202017/01/2021

Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier

Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien

“Shadow Citizens” offers an insight into the radical film praxis and extensive oeuvre of filmmaker Želimir Žilnik (b. 1942, based in Novi Sad, Serbia) within an exhibition context. The exhibition is part of the official Viennale 2020 program and a collaboration with Austrian Film Museum.

From his beginnings in the lively amateur film scene of Yugoslavia in the 1960s, Žilnik has gone on to make more than fifty films, including a number of feature films and TV productions, often in the genre of docudrama. He received international recognition early on, winning the Golden Bear for the Best Film at the 1969 Berlin International Film Festival for “Early Works”. In the 1970s, his films encountered political opposition, and he left Yugoslavia for Germany, where he realized several independent films, including some of the earliest films dealing with the topic of guest workers. In the 1980s, after leaving Germany—due to his films once again facing political opposition and censorship—and returning to Yugoslavia, he made numerous TV and feature films in which he portrayed early symptoms of the country’s growing social conflicts, continuing in the 1990s with films dealing with the maladies of the post-socialist transition as well as questions of migration.

Many of Žilnik’s films have prophetically anticipated real-world events such as the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the economic transition from socialism to a neoliberal order, the elimination of workers’ rights, and the wider social erosion related to labor and migration. The exhibition’s title, Shadow Citizens, reflects Žilnik’s lifelong focus on invisible, suppressed, and under- and misrepresented members of society.

Smolka Contemporary (in Kooperation mit der Akademie der bildenden Künste, Wien)

Lobkowtzplatz 3, 1010 Wien

The exhibition starts from the simple thesis that art is specialized in perception. So what form of perception is needed to respond appropriately to the ecological and climate crisis? How can art grasp, represent and project the entanglement of subject and milieu? What forms of recording can art design when it comes to sketching a new concept of “environment”? In this exhibition, several groups of students from the Academy of Fine Arts will address different levels and dimensions of the perception of environments and present their findings and proposals. The focus will be on highly empathetic, but also on molecular recordings, reactions and translations of interior and exterior environments: weather, water, steppe, mud, stone, soil, skin, decay and recreation. The result is a network of cartographies of new vectors in a perceptual and world reference, which in the relationship between subject and Gaia, the earth, uses intersubjectivity as a frame of conversation.

Praterstraße 13/1/2, 1020 Wien

Leopold Kessler’s interventions in legal apparatus, commercial services and public spaces are based on ingenious and dry, humorous observations of urban life and show an acute awareness of the worldly systems that keep today’s society running.

Kessler’s works also offer a unique view of psychogeography. He does not reorganize the city with the rhetoric of hallucinatory miracles or revolutionary romanticism, but through the perspective of work, infrastructure and maintenance and transforms these systems into a stage for urban black comedies.

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Untere Weißgerber Straße 13, 1030 Wien

As a Green Museum, KUNST HAUS WIEN regularly dedicates major photographic presentations to key ecological themes. The main exhibition in autumn presents a selection of artistic positions that focus on the effects of climate change on the ecosystem. The works in the exhibition show and analyse the impact the global climate crisis has on glaciers, sea and marine regions, considering both scientific and political aspects. The images of disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increasingly acidified oceans and desertificated land areas are not least emotionally touching, and once again bear witness to the urgency of the topic.

Nach uns die Sintflut [After Us, the Flood] brings together current photographic and cinematic work by 21 international and domestic artists. Their works, often the result of extensive research and close collaborations with leading scientists, throw into relief the ecological effects our way of life has on different regions of the earth. Some also highlight its socio-political and social consequences, or outline future scenarios. The artists draw attention to people in those regions already most affected by the consequences of climate change, and illustrate the global connections between our lifestyle and the ecological, social and economic problems we face.

Artists: Benoit Aquin, Ursula Biemann, Axel Braun, Solmaz Daryani, Verena Dengler, Michael Goldgruber, Justin Brice Guariglia, Stephan Huber, Genoveva Kriechbaum, Anouk Kruithof, Bénédicte Kurzen, Douglas Mandry, Benedikt Partenheimer, Sarker Protick, Gabriele Rothemann, Anastasia Samoylova, Christina Seely, Nicole Six & Paul Petritsch, Frank Thiel, Angela Tiatia

Schleifmühlgasse 13, 1040 Wien

Austrian artist Darius Edlinger presents at gallery rauminhalt_harald bichler an ensemble of graphically abstracted musical instruments and corresponding phrases of reduced sounds pressed onto vinyl. Each instrument displayed finds its acoustic equivalent in a specially composed and repetitive musical motif that is subject to constant change. The individual painting in connection with its corresponding sound stands for itself. In the exhibition, Edlinger allows these individual works to sound as an ensemble, which, as a result of tonal overlaps, form a unified sound and produce different nuances depending on the position of the needles of the individual turntables.

Neubaugasse 40a,

In the exhibition series “Visions of Media Art” contemporary artists are invited to react, reflect and be inspired by visionary ideas and attitudes of programmatic artists. In 2020, the artist, experimental film maker and para-ethnographic documentarist Ulrike Ottinger will be the leading figure for the project. Her multidisciplinary work is visionary for poetic que(e)r thinking. The three curated positions to start a dialogue with her work are: kozek hörlonski / Alexander Martinz / Evelyn Loschy. What they have in common is that they include “charged” images, installations, objects and (sound) appearances to produce ambiguous and/or uncanny actions.

kozek hörlonski is the name of the ongoing collaboration between performance and installation artists Peter Kozek and Thomas Hörl. Their work at the interface of installation, film and performance explores the perspectives of images that originate from myths, folk tales and historically charged figures from Austria.

Alexander Martinz is a composer and media artist who deals with the diverse relationships and logics of audiovisual media and the complex transformation of pop culture material.

Evelyn Loschy works with various methods and materials, from video, photography, land art and site-specific interventions to kinetic, (auto)destructive sculptures that have been the focus of her creative work in recent years.

Collectors Agenda

Franz-Josefs-Kai 3/16
1010 Wien

Martin Lukáč’s (*1989, Slovakia) paintings can at times be a mess of vivid colors – expressive shapes and faces in disorder that can’t wait to tell their story. Then again other works feature clear yet mysterious symbols. What unites them is Lukáč’s painterly appetite for adventure. In his work, the Prague-based artist often varies simple and contrasting forms and visual motifs that he continues throughout several series.

His compositions give the impression of automatic drawings or spontaneous graphical recordings that simulate naive and raw creative expression, with his drawings performing as a fictitious alphabet or mimicry of symbols that are responsible only to themselves. The richness of forms and symbolism that Lukáč produces is difficult to pin down and is best experienced at a subjective associative level.

Martin Lukáč has already exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group shows, including Duve Berlin (2019), The Cabin in Los Angeles (2019), Roel van Der Linden & Martin Lukáč in New York (2018), Kunstraum Ortloff in Leipzig (2019), as well as in other galleries, off-spaces and art spaces in China, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Maja Vukoje

On the Edge

12/11/202025/04/2021

Belvedere 21 – Museum für zeitgenössische Kunst

Arsenalstraße 1,
1030 Wien

In her painting Maja Vukoje explores cultural hybridity and transculturality as basic conditions of our globalized lives. Over various stages of her artistic career, Vukoje has developed a distinct artistic language in which she not only focuses on the mixture and fusion of elements of different cultures as visual motifs. Vukoje also reflects these hybrid phenomena in the materials and artistic methods she applies, thus blurring the boundaries of painting as a medium.

From 12 November 2020, Belvedere 21 will be hosting the artist’s most comprehensive solo show to date. The exhibition will comprise some one hundred works from the past fifteen years, with an emphasis on her most recent work series. In the latter tropical fruits and so-called colonial goods like coffee and sugar come face to face with symbols of our digitized everyday lives, motifs from popular culture, and iconic works of painterly abstraction. In a spatial intervention specially designed for this exhibition, Maja Vukoje also interweaves her exploration of the formal language of Modernism with questions of display.

Österreichische Gesellschaft vom Goldenen Kreuze

Kärntner Straße 26/ Marco-d'Aviano-Gasse 1

Twice a year, the Österreichische Gesellschaft vom Goldenen Kreuze presents an artist from the so-called “outsider” scene. In cooperation with the Vienna Art Week and Jugend am Werk, the current exhibition Living Rituals shows pictures by Suzanne Dixon, Susanne Kuzma, and Ingrid Lechner.

The rhythms of nature and the cycles of day and night, waking and sleeping, inhaling and exhaling define the human existence. Rituals are often cultural acts, shaped by automated, repetitive processes that incorporate the physique. They possess a calming effect and have nothing in common with the modernity of linear thought and the purposeful lines of action determined by our will. These rituals have become so commonplace that we scarcely notice them any longer. They sometimes appear trivial, but they are not contrary to nature. Quite the opposite: art that is not an antipode to nature but rather bonds with it through the rhythm of forms, shapes, and colours can convey stability and structure with rituals. Rituals can be understood as the translation of natural processes into cultural practice. They manifest authentic action and distinguish themselves through self-sufficiency and ongoing permanence.

What artists such as Suzanne Dixon, Susanne Kuzma, and Ingrid Lechner share is the continuous pursuit of artistic activities, an aesthetic dedication and devotion without academic training. They practise and progress. They follow neither short-lived trends and the fashions of the market nor the models and the knowledge of art history. These artists represent an obsession and pursue their own mission.

Suzanne Dixon is concerned with bygone times. Her generally female figures make reference both to historic aristocratic dynasties and to present-day heads of countries and cities. The focal point of her drawings is their ornamented garments, accessories, and utensils of daily use.

Susanne Kuzma paints landscapes in cheery colours. Her pictures, which are ultimately representational, are constructed from squares, motivic repetitions, and

stripes. The result is pictures of ornamental patterns that emphasise the image surface.

Ingrid Lechner brings together in her paper works a colourful and exotic world of flora and fauna. With their pronounced ornamentation and shrill swirls of colour, her works often have a psychedelic feeling.

Push and be pushed – living rituals

The focus of the event and exhibition is on the cinematic works of the Fužine project, which were created as part of the collaboration between students of the Art & Science Mastership at the University of Applied Sciences and Rijeka 2020 (European Capital of Culture).

The question of how people create a relationship and resonance with the material world runs like a red thread through the individual works. How can the different world relationships of people be described, how do people behave today towards their outside world, their neighbors, their environment, nature, towards systems and what possible personal experiences of their own self are actually there? Is there even a culture beyond rituals, if, for example, one describes human culture as a compensation for human instinct-reducedness?

Based on the visual and acoustic narratives of the films, the individual thematic strands and formal languages ​​are related to one another and discussed under the coordinate system of the ritual. Attempts will be made to artistically visualize or model the drama of human existence in approaches. Questions and answers in the form of artistic productions aim to trace the nature of our intersubjective cultural world: In which world do we live today?

From his beginnings in the lively amateur film scene of Yugoslavia in the 1960s, Žilnik (b. 1942, based in Novi Sad, Serbia) has gone on to make more than fifty films. He received international recognition early on, winning the Golden Bear for the Best Film at the 1969 Berlin International Film Festival for Early Works. In the 1970s his films encountered political opposition, and he left Yugoslavia for Germany, where he realized several independent films, including some of the earliest films dealing with the topic of guest workers. In the 1980s, after leaving Germany—due to his films once again facing political opposition and censorship—and returning to Yugoslavia, he made numerous films in which he portrayed early symptoms of the country’s growing social conflicts, continuing in the 1990s with films dealing with the maladies of the post-socialist transition as well as questions of migration.

Želimir Žilnik will also talk about his very recent film “The Most Beautiful Country in the World” that follows a group of young migrants in Vienna who break through the administrative labyrinths of checkings and gaining status and residence. Many of Žilnik’s films have prophetically anticipated real-world events such as the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the economic transition from socialism to a neoliberal order, the elimination of workers’ rights, and the wider social erosion related to labor and migration. The title of the exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien, “Shadow Citizens”, reflects Žilnik’s lifelong focus on invisible, suppressed, and under- as well as misrepresented members of society.

Ada is … Healing

For a freely associative, appropriate appropriation and extended search for indicators of healing processes, we examine various parameters, based on alternative forms of therapy with their rituals and forms. These serve as the starting material for researching the levels of interaction between doctor and patient and the mode of action that support the healing processes in humans.

By exploring the placebo effect, our approach is a quantum holographic catalyst technology in the subtle area. The resulting depth effect helps people to look at themselves holistically in order to support the healing process by discharging the harmful energies. The artist is not a doctor or shaman, but illuminates and reflects sociological and intermedial rituals of medicine through appropriation. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if there are any risks and side effects from activating the self-healing powers.

The works also reflect the ambivalent aspects of ritual acts.

House of Rituals

Simmeringer Hauptstraße 155, 1100 Wien

Today, rituals seem like messengers from other times and distant places – in fact, they are deeply rooted in our society, serve social cohesion, structure everyday life and time sequences. In our present day, rituals are in danger of disappearing: the economy around narcissistic attention values, compulsion to perform, and productive acceleration increasingly displaces the modes of ritual and the rhythms of intuition. The “House of Rituals” is proof that contemporary art in particular contributes to the rehabilitation of rituals – an abandoned house brings old and new rituals to life.

The continuously awakened desire for consumption that is never satisfied, the still routine access to resources that have long been limited, cities in a self-evident, almost sold-out state, fast work without any guarantees for safety and development, an automobility that has fallen out of time, social cohesion measured by the exponential curves of a pandemic, the suspension of public life – the list could be continued but would still only capture fragments of a reality that does not pause and never gets beyond the now and the ever decisive moment.

 

The conditions under which this exhibition comes about are not least the result of a global emergency. Artists are questioning their ideas of a present that is marked by notions of the end of time and crises, while at the same time they are searching for fresh concepts and demanding new models. Resistant conceptions of the present as well as tangible prospects for a future are needed in order to gain the necessary scope. The more convincingly that inventory is realized, the sharper the concerns can be formulated and transferred. At the same time, the insight could be gained that such goals are those of many. In this sense, art is always to be understood politically.

 

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of posters that present facts and figures about the international situation.

Burroughs dictum ‘Language is a virus from outer space’ says that language never speaks alone as a language. In Viral Speech, a contemporary, biotechnologically informed ritual act, the visitors’ speech sounds follow the interests of their oral microbes. With their saliva and respiratory flow and with the help of voice spectrograms and biosensors, the visitors ‘speak’ an ideal chemical milieu: the more thriving it is for the microbes, the more inhospitable and repellent it becomes for infectious viruses. By negotiating the viral dangers within themselves, rather than outside them, visitors take part in a strange biopolitical ‘discussion’ that extends the concept of the subject to non-human actors.

Canvas Sculptures

Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder

Grünangergasse 1, 1010 Wien

„Ich habe mit Kunst angefangen, die eigentlich unsichtbar ist“, bemerkte Daniel Knorr einmal über seine frühen Arbeiten. Der in Rumänien geborene und in Berlin und Hongkong lebende Künstler hat 2005 den rumänischen Pavillon der Biennale in Venedig bespielt und dort diesen Ansatz wohl am konsequentesten umgesetzt. Er entfachte gezielt eine politische Diskussion, indem er die Ausstellungsräume komplett leer ließ und so die Gebrauchspuren der vergangenen Ausstellung sichtbar machte.
Mit der 2013 entstandenen Serie Depression Elevations erweiterte Knorr diese Idee um den Aspekt der Materialität. Er formte Vertiefungen und Unebenheiten von Straßen und Plätzen ab. Diese Fehlstellen, die versteckten Geschichten und unsichtbaren Spuren unseres Alltagslebens, goss er in schillernde, haptisch ansprechende Objekte.
Die vierte Einzelausstellung von Daniel Knorr in der Galerie zeigt drei Werkgruppen, die aus der Serie Depression Elevations heraus entstanden und weiterentwickelt wurden.

an art project by Sylvia K. Kummer as part of the Vienna Art Week
within the dialog row >>atlas.axis. – a subtle communication<<

A covered table in the middle of an exhibition – with works, statements, video sequences of international artists, reflecting the current situation – as a sign of the solidarity of all those who "burn for art".

Within the dialogue series, people – who continue to work, invest and commit themselves to the dissemination of art despite financial constraints and an uncertain future, curiously wandering through the world, exploring themselves and their surroundings, living and reacting to its uniqueness and diversity – are invited to exchange ideas, work, recognize similarities and differences, support each other and talk about strengthening rituals of resilience – in their works, in their statements, directly at the blackboard and/or virtually.

CHANCES_CHANGES_RITUALS shows the possibility to change thru chances. Chances are an important factor that influence our decisions and change our rituals as we have seen in recent times. They help us escape into different mindsets and change circumstances. Rituals are repeatable and can be included in our everyday life. How important they are is at least since COVID-19 deliberate.
The exhibition shows artists dealing with this topic: Herbert Brandl, Edelgard Gerngross, Soli Kiani, Nubauer, Sophie Tiller.
Opening: 15th of Nov. 2020, 19.00-21.30

Hundertwasser and Beuys - art as a ritual in the 50s and 60s

After the Second Vatican Council in 1962 at the latest, action artists in the fields of music, literature, theatre and painting took over moments of Catholic ritual and liturgies. The arts became secular successors of the churches. They remained the last field of metaphysical self-exaltation for enlightened Westerners. One of the earliest confirmations of this tendency, which continues to this day, was the Hamburg line of December 1959, now part of the Hundertwasser exhibition in the Leopold Museum. Bazon Brock carried these movements into action and theory.

15/11/202030/11/2020

RED CARPET Showroom Altes Landgut

U-Bahn-Station Altes Landgut, 1100 Wien

Installation by NATALIA GUROVA supported by Red Carpet Art Award and Marcello Farabegoli Projects.

Altes Landgut (Old Country Estate) made its way from royal fields to the casino district in Vienna. The artist revives these historical traces in her work. To this end she deals with the history of boredom (spleen, melancholy), which according to historians goes back several centuries. In different countries and times people have been bored in different ways. At the court of Louis XIV, “l’humeur noire” was initially characterised as the state into which courtiers fell during endless dinners. In Russia melancholy was existential. A gentleman like Oblomov preferred hibernation to vanity. The Austrian casinos, flourishing in the XVIII century, offered the chance to cope with existential boredom. They functioned in a certain loop: roundish house full of gambling tables. Roulette set the standard for the passing of time at the gambling table. Natalia Gurova wants to find out how the state of boredom is reflected in the rituals of Altes Landgut. The subway pays a bill for these rituals and carries away the burden of everyday life.

Amina Handke‘s Residency at Blickle Raum Spiegelgasse

16/11/202018/11/2020

14:00

Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien zu Gast im Theatermuseum

1., Lobkowitzplatz 2

Amina Handke nutzt den Blickle Raum Spiegelgasse im Rahmen ihrer Residency als temporäres Atelier zur Gastarbeit. Sie gibt Einblicke in die unterschiedlichen Phasen ihres kreativen Arbeitens, in dem sie unter anderem Fragen nach “Werk” und “Original” formuliert sowie nach “Archiv” und “Erinnerung”.

Zeitliche Begrenzungen fransen in den künstlerischen Arbeiten aus und Handke agiert in einer suchenden Bewegung gleichzeitig vor- und rückwärts. Dazu bewegt sie sich durch ihr eigenes biografisches Archiv und bedient sich verschiedener Medien. Sie dehnt und durchstößt lineare Zeitmembrane, etwa wenn in der filmischen Bearbeitung des Theaterstücks “Kaspar” (Peter Handke, 1967) ihre Mutter die Titelrolle übernimmt. Der Blickle Raum wird dabei zum Drehort und Studio.
Im Rahmen der Vienna Art Week 2020 bezieht die Künstlerin den Blickle Raum über mehrere Tage als Atelier, um an dem Filmprojekt zu arbeiten. Den ephemeren Prozess einer künstlerischen Inszenierung verdeutlicht Amina Handke in Zeiten von Covid-19 durch die Einbindung von Publikum über inzwischen alltäglich gewordene Live-Videoübertragung. Auf Einladung der Gemäldegalerie der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien wird der Eroica-Saal des Theatermuseums für die Verknüpfung von Raum, Projekt und Akteur_innen genutzt. Ob dieser Prozess etwas sichtbarer macht, bleibt offen und ein wenig abhängig von der Eigeninitiative der BesucherInnen.
Erhaschen Sie einen kleinen – vielleicht partizipativen – Einblick in die Residency von Amina Handke 2020. Denn wann der Blickle Raum Spiegelgasse wieder im realen Raum die Türen öffnet, wird sich auch der allgemeinen Situation anpassen und entwickeln.

Amina Handke‘s Residency im Blickle Raum Spiegelgasse ab 2020 wird von der Ursula Blickle Stiftung (www.ursula-blickle-stiftung.de) ermöglicht. Das Programm im Rahmen der Vienna Art Week ist eine Kooperation der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien und der Ursula Blickle Stiftung.

THE GREEN BOOK II

 THE GREEN BOOK II

16/11 – 05/12/2020

Tewa Barnosa, Saari Elfaitouri, Malak El-Ghuel, Rawand Haress, Kosta Tonev, Niwa Yoshinori

 curated by Tewa Barnosa, Christine Bruckbauer und Elisabeth Piskernik

Libyan children spent two hours a week studying “The Green Book” as part of their curriculum. Excerpts from it were broadcast every day on television and radio. The slogans were printed on posters and painted on Libyan buildings.

In 1975, Mouammar al-Gaddafi published “The Green Book”, in which he railed against liberal democracy and capitalism, proposing instead the “Third Universal Theory”: a system of Direct People’s Participation in the political process through the instruments of the People’s Congress and People’s Committees. The book consists of three chapters: on politics, economics and social affairs, in the latter Gaddafi also comments on the role of women in society. 

 The exhibition THE GREEN BOOK II sheds light on the post-socio-political impact of a book that was sold to the people as the perfect guide to the optimal system of a democratic state, but in the end deeply damaged Libya’s social structure.

 

In addition to the works of four artists from Libya, whose lives were once massively determined by “The Green Book”, the exhibition also shows contributions by two artists based in Austria, whose works deal with (failed) political ideologies and raise the question of how to deal with their consequences. 

THE GREEN BOOK was shown at Le Cube – independent art room in Rabat / Marokko in 2019 for the first time and was part of the Research and Residency Programme travelling narratives.

Österreichische Gesellschaft vom Goldenen Kreuze

Kärntner Straße 26/ Marco-d'Aviano-Gasse 1

Twice a year, the Österreichische Gesellschaft vom Goldenen Kreuze presents an artist from the so-called “outsider” scene. In cooperation with the Vienna Art Week and Jugend am Werk, the current exhibition Living Rituals shows pictures by Suzanne Dixon, Susanne Kuzma, and Ingrid Lechner.

 

The rhythms of nature and the cycles of day and night, waking and sleeping, inhaling and exhaling define the human existence. Rituals are often cultural acts, shaped by automated, repetitive processes that incorporate the physique. They possess a calming effect and have nothing in common with the modernity of linear thought and the purposeful lines of action determined by our will. These rituals have become so commonplace that we scarcely notice them any longer. They sometimes appear trivial, but they are not contrary to nature. Quite the opposite: art that is not an antipode to nature but rather bonds with it through the rhythm of forms, shapes, and colours can convey stability and structure with rituals. Rituals can be understood as the translation of natural processes into cultural practice. They manifest authentic action and distinguish themselves through self-sufficiency and ongoing permanence.

What artists such as Suzanne Dixon, Susanne Kuzma, and Ingrid Lechner share is the continuous pursuit of artistic activities, an aesthetic dedication and devotion without academic training. They practise and progress. They follow neither short-lived trends and the fashions of the market nor the models and the knowledge of art history. These artists represent an obsession and pursue their own mission.

Suzanne Dixon is concerned with bygone times. Her generally female figures make reference both to historic aristocratic dynasties and to present-day heads of countries and cities. The focal point of her drawings is their ornamented garments, accessories, and utensils of daily use.

Susanne Kuzma paints landscapes in cheery colours. Her pictures, which are ultimately representational, are constructed from squares, motivic repetitions, and stripes. The result is pictures of ornamental patterns that emphasise the image surface.

Ingrid Lechner brings together in her paper works a colourful and exotic world of flora and fauna. With their pronounced ornamentation and shrill swirls of colour, her works often have a psychedelic feeling.

Curator: Angela Stief

 

Exhibition duration: 18 November 2020 until the end of March 2021

MuseumsQuartier Wien, MQ Libelle, Museumsplatz 1,
1070 Wien

The newly opened ‘MQ Libelle’ on the roof of the Leopold Museum is the first major extension of MuseumsQuartier. Accessible to the public and admission-free, the terraced landscape with its iconic dragonfly structure, designed by architect Laurids Ortner, offers not only one of the most beautiful views over the city, but also the opportunity of experiencing everything from a different perspective.

Leading Austrian artists have contributed to the project: the MQ Libelle’s glass façade, entitled ‘veiled’, was designed by Eva Schlegel, who gained fame as a participant (1995) and later commissioner (2011) of Austria’s entry for the Venice Biennale, among other achievements. Another eye-catcher is ‘Lichtkreise’ (‘Circles of Light’) by Brigitte Kowanz, who was a participant in the 2017 Venice Biennale and whose awards include the 2009 Grand Austrian State Prize for Visual Art for her work with space and light.

Learn more about the history of this one-of-a-kind architectural work of art on an exclusive guided tour with architect Laurids Ortner, artists Brigitte Kowanz and Eva Schlegel and MQ Director Christian Strasser.

Pop-Up Exhibition 5: CREATIVE CLIMATE CARE
A cooperation between the MAK and the University of Applied Arts Vienna
In her exhibition at the MAK, artist Antonia Rippel-Stefanska addresses the issue from which reality of life we approach the topic of climate care and which new fields and options for action shape the structure and dynamics of family as a reaction towards social change.

The exhibition cooperation CREATIVE CLIMATE CARE explores topics pertaining to the climate, environment, and sustainability and the contribution of design, architecture, and art to developing a new mindset for active climate care.

ADOLF LOOS: Private Houses
One of the most important Austrian architects of the 20th century, Adolf Loos concentrated on designing residential buildings all his life. The exhibition focuses on private homes, though by way of contrast it also presents Loos’s most important social housing projects. Family homes, villas, and country houses, for the most part luxuriously furnished and designed for a middle-class clientele, are juxtaposed with revolutionary social projects such as those Loos designed for the municipality of Vienna. The exhibition also presents design drawings, plans, photographs, and models from the Albertina’s Adolf Loos Archive.

KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM WIEN

Maria-Theresien-Platz,
1010 Wien

On 17 November 2020, the Dutch artist Guido van der Werve will be part of a conversation in the context of the exhibition “Beethoven Moves”. His video work “Nummer acht, everything is going to be alright” will be shown at the museum from 29 September 2020 to 24 January 2021. The work shows a single person (the artist himself) walking alone across a frozen wasteland, dwarfed within the landscape and seemingly oblivious to the huge ship that forces and grinds its own path through the ice just a few steps behind him.

The work draws on the melancholy and poignancy of the Romantic disposition, tracing direct lines between beauty and pain, mankind and nature, the sublime and the ridiculous. While it was not made with Beethoven in mind, the work has parallels with the composer’s isolation and physical impediment and his struggle to overcome them.
Guido van der Werve will discuss his work and his personal connection to Beethoven. The talk will be held in English.

15 seats will be reserved for participants of Vienna Art Week. First come, first serve! Please register under talks@khm.at naming the reference “VIENNA ART WEEK”.

“This is the Future and you are the interface”, Till Langschied’s Performance-Alter-Ego Tumaroh proclaims, “you are one with technology. As a servant of neural networks, you are one and many simultaneously – with the whole universe resting in your palm.” The first digital version of his Performance “Palm Reading of Tumaroh” focuses on the fortune-telling ritual of palm readings: Our hands and fingers interact with computer screens all day long – for example with our smart phones. But which element is the interface, our palm or the screen? How is our body connected to the omniscient cloud?

During the online performance workshop, performer and digital fortune teller Tumaroh will instruct the participants to find the path to their digital selves in times of “body-server-interconnectivity”. After registration, the participants will receive a link to Tumarohs digital workspace.

The online workshop is part of the exhibition Stormy Weather (24 09 -21 11 2020).

Inspired by incredible forms existing in nature and our surroundings, this work is a representation of systems of support and connectivity. In the forest, trees of different species have been thought to fight for light, but in reality they benefit from one another when sharing the same space. Their intertwined roots and a symbiotic relationship to fungi create an underground economy that exists beneath trees, a huge network, called “The Wood Wide Web”.

After years living in Vienna, Roberta Lima moved to Finland and experienced the conflict with isolation. Initially Lima struggled with feeling alone, but then she profited from introspection. She embraced restrictions and sought for alternative forms of communication. Working remotely has been Lima’s reality since then. The support of her collaborators in Vienna, Brazil and other places is crucial for making and presenting this work.

A sculpture made of cables is the main object of the multi-media installation at Stadtraum in Vienna. Spread throughout the space, the cables connect to various media works distributed in the rooms. Displaying images produced in Finland, the works explore artistic production using the concepts of “The Wood Wide Web”. In Ghost Plant, the body stands as energy source and the element that challenges and redefines structures.

Darius Edlinger leads through his exhibition “Reprise”
Austrian artist Darius Edlinger presents at gallery rauminhalt_harald bichler an ensemble of graphically abstracted musical instruments and corresponding phrases of reduced sounds pressed onto vinyl. Each instrument displayed finds its acoustic equivalent in a specially composed and repetitive musical motif that is subject to constant change. The individual painting in connection with its corresponding sound stands for itself. In the exhibition, Edlinger allows these individual works to sound as an ensemble, which, as a result of tonal overlaps, form a unified sound and produce different nuances depending on the position of the needles of the individual turntables.

 THE GREEN BOOK II

16/11 – 05/12/2020

Tewa Barnosa, Saari Elfaitouri, Malak El-Ghuel, Rawand Haress, Kosta Tonev, Niwa Yoshinori

 curated by Tewa Barnosa, Christine Bruckbauer und Elisabeth Piskernik

Libyan children spent two hours a week studying “The Green Book” as part of their curriculum. Excerpts from it were broadcast every day on television and radio. The slogans were printed on posters and painted on Libyan buildings.

In 1975, Mouammar al-Gaddafi published “The Green Book”, in which he railed against liberal democracy and capitalism, proposing instead the “Third Universal Theory”: a system of Direct People’s Participation in the political process through the instruments of the People’s Congress and People’s Committees. The book consists of three chapters: on politics, economics and social affairs, in the latter Gaddafi also comments on the role of women in society. 

 The exhibition THE GREEN BOOK II sheds light on the post-socio-political impact of a book that was sold to the people as the perfect guide to the optimal system of a democratic state, but in the end deeply damaged Libya’s social structure.

 

In addition to the works of four artists from Libya, whose lives were once massively determined by “The Green Book”, the exhibition also shows contributions by two artists based in Austria, whose works deal with (failed) political ideologies and raise the question of how to deal with their consequences. 

THE GREEN BOOK was shown at Le Cube – independent art room in Rabat / Marokko in 2019 for the first time and was part of the Research and Residency Programme travelling narratives.

flat1

U-Bahn-Bogen 6–7,
1060 Wien

In its annual program 2020, flat1 already devotes itself to the phenomenon of repetition, copying or also: ritual. In doing so, society is basically unanimous in its attribution of values. In a massively media-influenced illusory reality, with the permanent striving for uniqueness, the “more of the same” is quickly considered boring and inferior.

And yet iterative action is a central basic human principle. It is the foundation of society by fixing emotional bonds. It serves to build perfection in all subjects from music to mathematics. Properly understood, routines and rituals free the mind for other experiments, take human action away from the level of permanent decision-making, free capacities to recreate realities, freely adapted from Hegel: through repetition, what at the beginning seemed only random and possible becomes real and confirmed.

Admittedly, what is confirmed and constant becomes oppressive and restricting when the advantages are no longer perceived and implemented. Instead, people call for variety and question, for example, a protracted, democratic-political routine.

flat1 sets itself the task of tracing these discrepancies in the attribution of values. This is no easy task, since art itself is ambivalent when it comes to the concept of repetition. In the romantic concept of genius, the claim is made that one can create unique masterpieces at any time, the opposite of repetition. Then again, rituals lead to thoroughly welcome style-forming features that lead to recognition on the art market.

“No dream is completely a dream” – pathologizes the writer-doctor Arthur Schnitzler in 1926 in his dream novella. A former psychiatric building becomes an anatomical theater. Practices of body appropriation activate the formerly medical rooms and lead through illusionist dream images and body rituals in intoxicated queer-feminist narratives.

Or you can keep it simple with Andy Warhol, who thoroughly clears up the genius-laden concept of art by making a plea for boredom and wants to live like a machine, always producing the same thing. For him, this is a feeling of security and safety, a thoroughly comforting approach in times like these.

How can the different world relationships of people be described, how do people behave today towards their outside world, their neighbors, their environment, nature, towards systems and what possible personal experiences of their own self are actually there? Is there a culture beyond ritual and ritual? Questions in the form of artistic productions aim to trace the nature of our intersubjective cultural world: In which world do we live today?

Hugo Canoilas, Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize winner 2020, uses the tradition and history of painting and object art to redefine and expand the connection between installational and performative strategies. Along with art history, he also references sociopolitical developments and the philosophical and art-theoretical discourses it involves. Currently, the all-dominating coronavirus crisis is already bringing into sharper focus virulent and interconnected topics such as the climate crisis, environmental degradation, and the ever-widening gap between poor and rich countries.
Canoilas’s work deals with these developments and the anthropocentric worldview on which they are based. It ties in with ideas of a careful and egalitarian human treatment of nature and its creatures—ideas that have evolved in ongoing discourses around the Anthropocene and Posthumanism.

The earth’s surface is a finite resource, and soil is our most precious commodity. Careless or capital-driven treatment of this resource has massively changed the shape and function of our towns and villages in recent decades. In view of the threat of a climate catastrophe and rising housing prices, the question arises as to whether the current path, with maximum compromises and minimum adaptation, is still sustainable. An extensive and couragous land policy is called for, where is it?

The progressive urban sprawl of the countryside has been the subject of discussion for decades. Meanwhile, everybody in Austria could be housed in the single-family homes that already exist 1), although yet more land is still being approved for building on, new shopping centres are going up on greenfield sites and whole chalet villages in the Alps. Weak or unenforced spatial planning regulations, a partly misguided tax law and subsidy system, and a despondent policy perpetuate the status quo instead of developing a vision for the future.

The exhibition explains the political, legal and economic background clearly and vividly, critically and sometimes inadvertantly absurdly. Case studies and explanations of the relevant terminology bring light into the thicket of responsible agents involved. International comparisons illustrate strengths and weaknesses, international examples of best practice show alternative approaches. We are all being called upon to think and act along new lines — and this exhibition is preparing the way.

In the exhibition “Direct Transit” curated by Boris Ondreička, artist Fabian Erik Patzak creates an intimate story based on his trans-generational experience of migration between Austria and the United States, that began with the emigration of his grandparents from Nazi Vienna. His work addresses interrelated themes such as heritage, displacement, memory and loss. In his paintings, the artist absorbs and motivates considerations of much wider personal, societal and even planetary questioning. These complex issues will be contextualized to the theories of the philosopher and author Emmanuel Levinas. With: Brigitta Keintzel and Astrid Peterle (not confirmed).

The exhibition is part of the MoreVALUE Art Award, awarded for the fifth time by das weisse haus in cooperation with the sponsoring program of Erste Bank and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. Endowed with 4,500 euros the prize is rounded off with a one-month stay in the American metropolis as a phase of inspiration and to expand one’s own network.

“No dream is completely a dream” – pathologizes the writer-doctor Arthur Schnitzler in 1926 in his dream novella. A former psychiatric building becomes an anatomical theater. Practices of body appropriation activate the formerly medical rooms and lead through illusionist dream images and body rituals in intoxicated queer-feminist narratives.

Praterstern 5,

The social networks and the general increased visibility of marginalized groups, their issues, conflicts and concerns in recent years, have also increased the radical opposition of conservative, homophobic, racist camps. It could be a final rebounding of the global, white, patriarchal power structure, but it could also take generations before equality and tolerance prevail. The struggle for a more just society is a daily struggle and must permeate all areas of our lives and everyday life. In this sense, “queer body against _______” is a celebration of the progressive, the future, of being different. All minorities together, are the majority. Intersectional feminism stands for equal conditions and opportunities for all people, against all forms of exploitation by capitalism, alternative ways of coming together. The Fluc as an open place of encounter with its programmatic representation of marginalized groups is particularly well suited for this.

At the exhibition space of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in Eschenbachgasse, a performative activation of the current exhibitions will take place in the frame of this year’s Vienna Art Week and in keeping with the motto “Living Rituals”. In the context of the group exhibition „New Views on Same-Olds“, which deals with loops and time loops, the Vienna-based artist Anna Paul is participating in the formation of a bacchanalian table. She creates a scenery that draws the attention of the visitors to eating as an everyday, recurring ritual and the aspect of collectivity that is present in it.

Raffaela Bielesch, a graduate of the academy, traces in her performance our affective attachment to everyday objects. In her „xposit“ solo presentation she invites us to reflect on the extent to which the desire to hold on, order and systematize objects loaded with memories is related to the construction of personal identity.

One of the most important Austrian architects of the 20th century, Adolf Loos concentrated on designing residential buildings all his life. The exhibition focuses on private homes, though by way of contrast it also presents Loos’s most important social housing projects. Family homes, villas, and country houses, for the most part luxuriously furnished and designed for a middle-class clientele, are juxtaposed with revolutionary social projects such as those Loos designed for the municipality of Vienna. The exhibition also presents design drawings, plans, photographs, and models from the Albertina’s Adolf Loos Archive.

Der Künstler und Architekt Jurgis Gečys untersucht in seiner Ausstellung im Bildraum 01 die Vorstellung einer möglichen neutralen Umgebung, ihre Rolle, ihre Formfaktoren und ihre Eigenschaften bei der Bildung einer binären Identität zwischen Mensch und Natur. Die ausgestellten Werke erkunden den Begriff des Bodens durch die bildhafte Abstraktion der Landschaft. Eine Landschaft ohne Kontextualisierung und vordefinierter Identität, ohne Eigenschaften, ohne Namen. Die Parallele zwischen Fotografie, Handzeichnung und räumlicher Installation hinterfragt die Mehrdeutigkeit sensorischer und mentaler Wahrnehmungen der gebauten Umwelt im Rahmen eines Ausstellungsraums.

Heldenplatz, 1010 Wien

The gallery “A Village in the Mountains” offers the opportunity to take part in the life of the residents of a Himalayan Buddhist village. Participating in the life of “others” also means asking questions of oneself: Where is the centre of my life? Who do I share it with? Why do I leave it? Where do I work? How do I view my environment? Which gods do I believe in and where do I encounter them? And perhaps the most fundamental of all questions: How do I explain the world to myself?
The model staging of a village in the mountains reveals how the residents of such a village answer these questions. This schematic representation focuses on the relationships between individuals living and working in different places. Some live in the house in a village and work in the surrounding fields, some on pastures higher up the mountain, others as monks or nuns in a monastery, and very few are drawn to a solitary and ascetic life in the mountains. Particular attention is dedicated to the intertwining of religious beliefs and profane actions. It is this connection that unlocks the meaning of the world for those living in the Himalayas.
This world no longer seems to attract many young people. In Nepal, many young people, mostly male, see no future for themselves and their families in the life that is represented in this exhibition gallery. Hundreds of thousands hire themselves out as construction workers in Malaysia and the Gulf States, frequently under the most hazardous conditions. Every day some of them return to their home country in wooden coffins.
The Nepalese artist Hit Man Gurung has addressed this subject in his work „I have to Feed Myself, My Family and My Country 1”. A mother holds her son’s coffin in a pose reminiscent of the Pietà. The large number of small portrait photographs originate from the passports of workers killed in accidents. These individuals can no longer support themselves, their families or their country.

“RITUAL actually concerns my entire work. especially in connection with my theatre, i have developed and realized nothing else than rituals. action paintings, the performance of my theatre, the cultivation and preparation of the relics is to be understood in the sense of devising rituals. the orgies mysteries theatre is a cultic and ritual procedure.

from the beginning, the ritual is determined by the form. actions, sensually comprehensible actions, accomplishments are expressed by the form. … the endless repetitions of rituals indicate eternity, the eternal recurrence demonstrates itself, makes itself visible. ritual without form is unthinkable. ritual is form, form is ritual. ritual has the form, the art.” – Hermann Nitsch

Hermann Nitsch talks about rituals and their influence on the Orgies Mysteries Theatre.

The combination of liberal democracy and capitalist market economy aiming for ritualized, continuous growth has a massive impact on our ecosystems and climate. Climate conferences turn out to be annually failing rituals and do not lead to any lasting changes. Individual measures to reduce the ecological footprint are important, but it takes a rethinking of our economic system. How can a system change towards an eco-social tax reform be successful? What incentives should be provided for society and the economy to find and implement sustainable solutions? Can climate protection and a “healthy” economic system work together hand in hand?

In German language

Österreichische Friedrich und Lillian Kiesler-Privatstiftung

Mariahilfer Straße 1b/1, 1060 Wien

The interdisciplinary working artist Josef Trattner has been working with the material foam for many years and realizes projects in public space using this material. An essential characteristic of his works is the overlapping of art-immanent aspects – the relationship of materiality, form and colour to interior and exterior space – with social issues. His ephemeral stagings in natural and urban spaces, which dissolve into nothing again after being changed by the public and weather influences, are always also social experimental arrangements that are inscribed with a self-reflexive and critical potential.
Exclusively for the Friedrich Kiesler Foundation a room sculpture with the dimensions 3 x 3 x 3 meters was realized, which can be used by the audience. Models, photos and a film documenting the creation of the sculpture will also be shown.

Neue Kunstverein Wien is showing the exhibition “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men”, an overview of Francis Ruyter’s more recent works as well as new ones not yet shown in Vienna and places them in a dialogue with earlier works, engaging in a critical analysis of the “American way of life”, which has been increasingly shaken by an inhuman neoliberalism. The works of Francis Ruyter gain in topicality and relevance in the face of the regulations of the Covid19 pandemic, which restrict civil rights not only in the United States, and its deep and tragic economic impact on millions of people, but also in the face of the increasing division of society beyond the United States caused by racism, violence and inequality.

The film this year’s girl by İpek Hamzaoğlu, Laura Nitsch and Sophie Thun shows the fictional collective images of / off images at their work as a commissioned team of photographers and filmmakers for the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019 (Renate Bertlmann). The collective – the filmmakers themselves – become observers of their own observations. From a kaleidoscopically nested perspective, the film shows how blurred the boundaries are between commissioned and freelance art, documentation and fiction, working time and private time, the sense of belonging and not belonging, and collaboration and individual work.

The screening will be followed by a conversation between the filmmakers and Katharina Aigner and Constanze Ruhm.

Curated by Alenka Gregorič and Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein, the group exhibition focuses on the emancipatory potential of art, enabling a platform for the practice of solidarity, alongside the possibilities and imponderabilities that are associated with it. The exhibition aims to initiate a new grammar for a diversity orientated “groundless solidarity”. Reflective on the conditions under which an individual gesture, can transform into a collective force, whilst interrupting a seemingly normal course of action, and thus becomes an event itself.

Sonny is an attempt at an anthropological research of a specific social phenomenon, known from the Balkan regions, upon others the remote parts of Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo and Metohia. ‘Sworn virgins’ or ‘virginias’, is a to this day existing practice where women who, in order to counter the patriarchal system, take the vow of chastity and on a societal level become men. The women, who now dress as men, behave as men, and use masculine pronouns, take on the form and function of i.e. the head of the family, including the imminent rights and public respect.

Sonny, taking on a performative form, shares the amazement and fascination with images, stories, and reproduction of that phenomenon. Questioning and deconstructing the survival mechanisms established within a man’s world, and standing up to the external attachment and conventions associated with the ‘double sex image’.

Danh Vo’s conceptual works and installations often build on personal experiences to address larger historical, social, and political concerns. Born in Vietnam and raised in Denmark, the artist is fascinated by the ways in which objects and histories become intertwined, serving as projections of national anxieties and personal identities. While the erotic and violent power plays of colonialism are a recurrent theme, so too are the sacred and profane dances of religion, and the manner in which administrative systems seek to shape (even curtail) personal intimacy and expression.
Vo’s installations present a plethora of artistic strategies, including documents, photographs, found objects (of historic or emotional significance), textual fragments in the form of ornate calligraphies executed by his father, and sometimes works by other artists. As an artist, Vo encompasses multiple roles —curator, collector, historian, auction scout— allowing him to deftly play with objects and contexts. Grappling with artifacts that are fraught with symbolic or emotional meaning, the artist resets their signification from project to project.

15:00

Museum Nordwestbahnhof (im Rahmen von KÖR Wien gefördertes Projekt)

Nordwestbahnstraße 16a, 1200 Wien

Barbara Steiner, director of the Kunsthaus Graz, will discuss with Michael Zinganel and Michael Hieslmair, who have been running a project space at the Nordwestbahnhof – Vienna’s last inner-city logistics hub – since 2015.

Embedded in the social milieu of logistics, they are successively creating a multi-layered multimedia cartography of the flows of goods and the migration and mobility experiences of people working here – with the aim to bring the history of this place into the public consciousness before it will disappear forever. Since 2020 the project space has been rebranded as an art project under the title “Museum Nordwestbahnhof”. At present, the KÖR Vienna project “Auf und Zugeschüttet” (Built-up and backfilled) can be seen here.

In their research-based art projects, both explore modern logistics landscapes and transnational road transport corridors as places of everyday encounters and histories. The interim results of their research are brought back to these nodes through on-site artistic interventions. At bus stations, motorway service stations or distribution centres, the established concepts of public sphere and public space are called into question: here highly mobile subjects develop pragmatic tactics, begin to appropriate spaces for dwellings in transit, create fragmented communities for trade or the exchange of experiences, or simply to share – and solve – problems. Here, communities are temporarily re-formed and dissolved again. However, these nodes are by no means isolated (non-)places; they exist in a network that extends over endless rail and road connections. The transformation of these networked spaces gives rise to alternative models of (post-)urbanism, which – driven by poly-rhythmic condensations of coming and going and the continuous performance of difference – increasingly shapes our everyday life.

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Untere Weißgerber Straße 13, 1030 Wien

As a Green Museum, KUNST HAUS WIEN regularly dedicates major photographic presentations to key ecological themes. The main exhibition in autumn presents a selection of artistic positions that focus on the effects of climate change on the ecosystem. The works in the exhibition show and analyse the impact the global climate crisis has on glaciers, sea and marine regions, considering both scientific and political aspects. The images of disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increasingly acidified oceans and desertificated land areas are not least emotionally touching, and once again bear witness to the urgency of the topic.

Nach uns die Sintflut [After Us, the Flood] brings together current photographic and cinematic work by 21 international and domestic artists. Their works, often the result of extensive research and close collaborations with leading scientists, throw into relief the ecological effects our way of life has on different regions of the earth. Some also highlight its socio-political and social consequences, or outline future scenarios. The artists draw attention to people in those regions already most affected by the consequences of climate change, and illustrate the global connections between our lifestyle and the ecological, social and economic problems we face.

KUNST HAUS WIEN. Museum Hundertwasser

Untere Weißgerber Straße 13, 1030 Wien

As a Green Museum, KUNST HAUS WIEN regularly dedicates major photographic presentations to key ecological themes. The main exhibition in autumn presents a selection of artistic positions that focus on the effects of climate change on the ecosystem. The works in the exhibition show and analyse the impact the global climate crisis has on glaciers, sea and marine regions, considering both scientific and political aspects. The images of disappearing glaciers, rising sea levels, increasingly acidified oceans and desertificated land areas are not least emotionally touching, and once again bear witness to the urgency of the topic.

Nach uns die Sintflut [After Us, the Flood] brings together current photographic and cinematic work by 21 international and domestic artists. Their works, often the result of extensive research and close collaborations with leading scientists, throw into relief the ecological effects our way of life has on different regions of the earth. Some also highlight its socio-political and social consequences, or outline future scenarios. The artists draw attention to people in those regions already most affected by the consequences of climate change, and illustrate the global connections between our lifestyle and the ecological, social and economic problems we face.
