Ane Mette Hol

Ane Mette Hol explores marginal phenomena of art production. Her eye locked on minor matter—items that fall on the ground while making art in the studio, for instance, or traces left in an exhibition space after installing the works—she sharpens the viewers’ awareness of the conditions surrounding artistic production.

DEFROSTING THE ICEBOX

RAID THE ICEBOX 1 with Andy Warhol (1969–1970) is seen as one of the earliest examples of a collection exhibition curated by an artist. Though the Warhol-curated exhibition did not feature any works by the artist himself, it contained several presentation strategies that broke with traditional museum standards: Instead of...

MISFITTING TOGETHER

"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’s titular words serve as the starting point for this exhibition. The artist’s last exhibition at mumok was in 1981, when...

Having Lived - Ingeborg Strobl

Ingeborg Strobl’s work is in the tradition of conceptual and cross-media art. In her objects, installations, collages, paintings, photographs, videos, and publications, images of nature and of animals play a key role as mirrors of society. Strobl is interested in the marginal, covert, and repressed, and her work also displays a...


Steve Reinke. Butter

"My work wants me dead, I know. It is all it ever talks about," writes Steve Reinke in an exchange of letters on the occasion of his exhibition at mumok. Death and life, empathy and cruelty, sex and intimacy—it is the ‘big’ questions the artist is after in his work. In the best Nietzschean manner, however, Reinke considers man not a...

Siegfried Zaworka

With Siegfried Zaworka, the mumok has for the first time invited an Austrian artist to fill the wall in the museum’s foyer with a site-specific work. Following photography-based installations by Cindy Sherman, Louise Lawler, and Jeff Wall, Zaworka focuses his artistic investigation on the devices used in pain- ting. Under the title...


James Coleman. Lapsus Exposure

The slide and audio installation Lapsus Exposure addresses communication, subjectivity, and the use of media. A key question concerns the significance of the chosen medium for our understanding of what we see. In his large slide projection, Irish artist James Coleman shows a studio situation that seems to be prepared for...


Reading Time in Space

Is modernism an epoch? How did artists see this in the 1920s? Reading Time in Space answers these questions by referring to four exhibitions and book projects that constituted the first global presentations of modernism and raised key questions in their own time.

These projects rested on new concepts of space and...


Anita Leisz. Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize 2019

Anita Leisz (born 1973 in Leoben) is the fourth prizewinner of the Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize, which promotes young artists who are based primarily in Austria.
Her minimal artistic practice cannot be reduced to a clearly defined medium or singular reading, nor to any specific, spatial situation, and this is what makes her work...


Forms Larger and Bolder: EVA HESSE DRAWINGS

"Crazy like machines, forms larger and bolder." This is how Eva Hesse described a group of finished drawings in 1965 in a letter to her artist friend Sol LeWitt. The idea of "bold forms" can be applied to the artist’s entire oeuvre of drawings, to which mumok is devoting this exhibition.
On view is a selection of works on paper...
