Artist Jakob Lena Knebl has no interest in thinking in predefined categories, neither in her life nor in her art. Her new arrangement of the mumok collection of modernist and contemporary art is a free and creative selection combined with new own works. The artist has the courage to be eccentric. Knebl focuses on classical modernism and the 1970s, an epoch of utopias, visions for society, and sexual experiments. The first of the two exhibition levels is devoted to a large installation characteristic of Knebl’s work, addressing constructs of identity, desire, and sensual experience. The artist herself also appears as an avatar in a digital, interactive installation in which artworks become protagonists. Visitors to this exhibition can follow the narrative and also shape it. The second level of the exhibition links scenarios of living like those known from trade fairs and furniture and design shows with works from the mumok collection—the fields of art, design, and fashion are continually shifting position. Moments of clarity alternate with uncertainty as to the function and arrangement of the objects presented.
