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...


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...

Ute Müller. Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize 2018

Ute Müller creates installations that place paintings, objects, and architecture into a dynamic interplay, breaking away from stale concepts of the work of art and forms of perception. Walls and plinths are removed from their usual architectural functions as frames and backdrops, themselves becoming motifs that shape both work and its...


Ernst Caramelle

mumok is showing the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of the work of Austrian artist Ernst Caramelle (born 1952 in Hall in Tirol). This exhibition includes all the phases of the artist’s work from 1974 to today. Various media and Caramelle’s conceptual approach will be interlinked and illustrated in an accessible way, but...


Painting with Method

The Neoavantgarde of the 1960s and 1970s is characterized by its radical breaks with tradition, by redefinitions of creative approaches and artistic media. The emergence of media-based art and the link between the theory and practice of art, in turn, led to innovative forms of painting. The general tendency to abandon figurative, or...


Loretta Fahrenholz

For her exhibition in mumok, Small Habit Revolution, artist and filmmaker Loretta Fahrenholz has created two new pieces that address key feminist works of the 1940s and their transfer into various Internet formats.
Story in Reverse is a multi-part slide installation based on Ilse Aichinger’s Mirror Story...

The papers of Ernst Schmidt jr. (1938–1988) were given as a gift to mumok in 2015, and in...
