Peter Weibel – A Retrospective 1964–2014
17 October 2014 to 11 January 2015
In the late 1960s, the rejection of sociopolitical conservatism with its traditional genderand class-specific role models manifested itself in radical upheavals in the arts: unconventional thinkers began to break up and merge the hitherto strictly separated genres of art and architecture.
As early as the late nineteenth century, both Berlin and Vienna were considered as rising metropolises. Nevertheless they have always, to the very present, represented divergent models of identification and different cultural self-concepts. Whereas the mutual exchange between the two cosmopolitan cities has already been intensively explored in terms of literature, theatre, and music, the juxtaposition of developments in the visual art and an analysis of their correlations constitute a blind spot. From an art historical perspective, they have merely been recognised in the form of individual biographic studies.
