    Herwig Turk

    Anamnese einer Landschaft

    For several years, the Austrian artist Herwig Turk has been dealing with the exceptional landscape of the Tagliamento. The wild river in the upper Italian region of Friuli is one of the very few unregulated rivers in the Alps. In his multi-layered and artistically demanding examination of the Tagliamento, Turk presents the river areas as places with different uses, cultural attributions and evaluations in the exhibiton "Anamnese einer Landschaft".

    Elfie Semotan

    Haltung und Pose

    On the occasion of her 80th birthday, an extensive retrospective of the Austrian photographer Elfie Semotan will be launched in spring under the title HALTUNG UND POSE.

As a sought-after photographer, she is invited by magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Esquire, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar and The New Yorker. In the exhibition, Semotan's photographic cosmos is made tangible as a large, interlocking web of specific questions and approaches to the medium of photography.

    Ines Doujak

    Landschaftsmalerei

    For landscape painting, the artist Ines Doujak works in the KUNST HAUS WIEN Garage with collected and archived nature: with dried plants, mushrooms, seeds, crushed blossoms, leaves, berries, wood, ashes, clay, stones and sand. She develops her installation in a process-oriented way by drawing on her natural archive, which she uses as artistic material - like a colour palette. In the central work "Land Robbery" Doujak takes up a highly topical political theme: The unscrupulous expropriation and displacement of rural populations all over the world, leading to the destruction of biodiversity through monocultures.

    Susan Meiselas

    Mediations

    In autumn, KUNST HAUS WIEN is dedicating an extensive personal exhibition to the great American Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas in an Austrian premiere. Since the mid-1970s, Meiselas has been addressing the social and political upheavals in our society in her artistic work. Meiselas documents the role of women in the series "Prince Street", in which she accompanies young girls over 14 years in their becoming women. Meiselas became known for her work in the conflict zones of Central America in the 1970s and 1980s with her photographs of the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. One of her pioneering projects for documenting cultural and social memory is the Kurdistan Archive on the history of the Kurdish diaspora.

    Tree and Soil

    The Dutch artist duo Robert Knoth & Antoinette De Jong will present their new two-channel audio-video installation "Tree and Soil" together with photographic works from the series of the same name in the KUNST HAUS WIEN Garage from mid-October. The series was created in Fukushima, Japan, where significant amounts of radioactive material were released from the damaged nuclear power plant in 2011 as a result of a tsunami triggered by an earthquake. They show evacuated villages, fields and surrounding forests as well as the slow transformation of the landscape and nature.
