Preview: Family Matters

4.10.2019 - 30.8.2020
This exhibition questions how different family constellations, their conditions and effects on the individual and society, are reflected in art. From single parent families, to clan associations, to chosen families - the exhibition paints a complex picture of what a family can be. It presents objects spanning the Middle Ages to modern and contemporary art, rendered in a variety of media: sculpture, drawings, paintings, photography, and video art.

In this exhibition, historic loans from national and international museums and collections, selected objects from the museum's collection of avant-garde works from the Otto Mauer collection, works by recent Otto Mauer Prize winners, as well as new acquisitions, donations and artistic interventions interface with each other.

The exhibition opening will take place on October 3., 2019, at 6PM.
