THE BODY ELECTRIC - Erwin Osen and Egon Schiele

The exhibition The Body Electric: Erwin Osen and Egon Schiele, to be shown at the Leopold Museum, is a presentation based on a number of recently re-discovered drawings by Erwin Osen (1891–1970). These were commissioned by Stefan Jellinek (1871–1968), a physicist and doctor active in Vienna until 1939, who during World War I researched the use of electricity in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorders.

And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?

And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?

“And if I devoted my life to one of its feathers?” writes the Chilean poet and activist Cecilia Vicuña in her 1971 poem Precarious. With this question, which Kunsthalle Wien and Wiener Festwochen have now chosen as the title for their joint project, Vicuña counters anthropocentric and hetero-patriarchal urges with healing and appreciation, reviving the aesthetic and spiritual bonds between human and non-human entities and worlds.
