Heimo Zobernig

Heimo Zobernig

Painting, along with sculpture, film, performance, and design, is a central component of the intermedia art of Heimo Zobernig. Since the beginning of his artistic practice in the early 1980s, the artist has built up a comprehensive painterly oeuvre, always based on his attempt to explore color like a “scientist.” Thus, in Zobernig’s work, painting has become a machine for the creation of insight. Characteristics of the artist’s method in this context are strategies of simplification, standardization, and systematization using predefined rules and the artistic appropriation of industrial norms and widespread samples (such as TV test patterns).

currently closed: Enjoy - The mumok Collection in Change

Ten years after joining the museum, Karola Kraus is organizing with her team a collection presentation that includes central donations and acquisitions from the past decade. The selected works range from classical modernism to the present day, following the path of the collection’s development. Twenty years after mumok opened in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, and forty years after the founding of the Austrian Ludwig Foundation, this exhibition is both a survey of the past and a glimpse ahead to the future. As the past years are reviewed, new perspectives are proposed as basis for the museum’s future collection and exhibition activities. The collection exhibition Enjoy sets out to convey the intertwining of past and present as a living process of continual reassessment and revaluation that reflects everchanging socio-political, socio-cultural, and philosophical developments and discourses. The main themes cut across time and media: the depiction of life in society, the human body, and nature, as well as migration and the drawing of boundaries.Curated by Karola Kraus with Manuela Ammer, Heike Eipeldauer, Rainer Fuchs, Naoko Kaltschmidt, Matthias Michalka

With Siegfried Zaworka, mumok has for the first time invited an Austrian artist to fill the wall in the museum’s foyer with a site specific work. Following photography based installations by Cindy Sherman, Louise Lawler, and Jeff Wall, Zaworka focuses his artistic investigation on the devices used in painting.

Ane Mette Hol - Becoming (working title)

Ane Mette Hol - Becoming (working title)

Ane Mette Hol explores marginal phenomena of art production. Her eye locked on minor matter—items that fall on the ground while making art in the studio, for instance, or traces left in an exhibition space after installing the works—she sharpens the viewers’ awareness of the conditions surrounding artistic production.
