The KUNSTHALLE wien draws attention to Vienna’s manifold and original art scene with its exhibition series \'Living and working in Vienna\' for a third time. Remapping Vienna’s terrain of art, \'Stars in a Plastic Bag\' assembles outstanding artists with their works, ideas, and performances. It has been possible again to win a renowned team of international female experts, who have come up with a selection eagerly awaited by the art scene. One part of the show will focus on positions of artists like Tillman Kaiser, Lukas Pusch, and Lisa Ruyter whose heart definitely belongs to painting and who bring the classical medium up to date in many-faceted ways. Another emphasis will be on gestural and expressive forms of articulation whose post-Actionist attitude becomes particularly manifest in Rudolf Polanszky’s, and Hubert Sielecki’s videos. Some participants such as Luisa Kasalicky and Katrin Plavcak use the exhibition hall as an extension of their studios by realizing their works or presenting them for the first time there. While Stephen Mathewson’s wall comic fathoms the possibilities of presentation in a museum space, Mahony’s travel experiences are an example of those works which draw on everyday subjects and popular culture and oscillate between \'high\' and \'low\' art. Maria Bussmann’s poetical drawings, Kathi Hofer’s installative reflections, and Lone Haugaard Madsen’s reduced spatial interventions offer subtle, conceptual, and sometimes anything but easy-to-grasp approaches. Artists such as Bernhard Cella and his library saloon with readings or Marianne Vlaschits with her performance extend the leeway of artistic practices.
