Greta Freist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Maria Lassnig, Padhi Frieberger, Günter Brus, VALIE EXPORT, Heimo Zobernig, Elke Silvia Krystufek, Ashley Hans Scheirl, and Jakob Lena Knebl: Works by these and many other Austrian artists in the collection account for the allure of the Belvedere’s holdings from the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition Avant-Garde and The Contemporary brings a distinguished selection of contemporary and historical artistic approaches from the collection as well as from the Artothek des Bundes, administered by the Belvedere, into productive correspondence. The collection is conceived as a dynamic structure of constellations, examined for continuities and ruptures, relevance and redundancy. Through multiple narrative strands, the show provides insights into art since the 1930s and highlights key artistic currents and tendencies.
