THE BEGINNING. Art in Austria, 1945-1980. #4 Abstract Art

Category: Exhibition 18. June 2020

With their abstract works, Austrian artists in the post-war years managed to become part of the international avant-garde in a very short time, although the production of abstract artworks has its origins in quite diverse starting points.

While the approach of artists like Josef Mikl, Otto Eder, Rudolf Hoflehner and Andreas Urteil is more focused on the human figure, painters like Wolfgang Hollegha or Max Weiler are more oriented towards nature. Arnulf Rainer creates his abstract works by means of reduction while Markus Prachensky or Hans Staudacher rely very much on their individual pictorial gesture in their approach to abstraction.

In our video, ALBERTINAmodern curator Antonia Hoerschelmann guides us through the exhibition "THE BEGINNING. Art in Austria 1945-1980", pointing out the crucial artistic features and protagonists of abstract art in Austria.
