THE BEGINNING. Art in Austria, 1945-1980. #7 Geometric Abstraction
In Austria's post-war art of the 1960s and 1970s we can find constructivist, concrete and and also cinetic artworks. In spite of a rich tradition – the Vienna Group, the Viennese School of art history or the twelve-tone technique come to mind – geometric abstraction and concrete art received surprisingly little attention at first.
In the opening exhibition "The Beginning. Art in Austria 1945 to 1980", ALBERTINAmodern exposes the protagonists of this art movement, among them Marc Adrian, Roland Goeschl, Richard Kriesche, Dóra Maurer, Hermann J. Painitz and Helga Philipp. In our CastYourArt video portrait, curator Angela Stief provides insights into the works and characteristic features of this art movement.https://www.albertina.at
