Barbara Kruger Believe + Doubt
Few artists have succeeded in treating the ambivalent effects of the mass media and their powers of persuasion in impressive works of art so cogently and variously as Barbara Kruger has done for more than four decades now. So it is no surprise that she is represented in major museum collections worldwide and enjoys broad public attention through exhibitions at renowned institutions.
Born in 1962 in Xalapa in the Mexican state of Veracruz, and living today in New York, Paris, and Mexico City, Gabriel Orozco is one of the best-known international artists of his generation. Following a major retrospective from 2009 to 2011, which was on view at the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Tate Modern in London, in Bregenz Orozco will be showing for the most part new works that have been conceived specially for the exhibition.

Up to the end of the 19th century in Saxony and Thuringia and other places a tradition of folk art practiced by disabled or discharged miners existed. These people constructed mechanical figures—referred to as »theatrum mundi«—that were exhibited at annual fairs. They became the stage for plays depicting natural catastrophes, battles, major world events, and for making up for lost jobs.
Two Kunsthaus Bregenz exhibitions have been listed under “Best of 2012” in the current number of America’s most important art journal Artforum: For Lynne Cooke the Yvonne Rainer show was one of the year’s major exhibitions worldwide, and Eungie Joo judged Danh Vo at the Kunsthaus Bregenz as one of the Top 10 exhibitions internationally.
Florian Pumhösl – Spatial Sequence
Florian Pumhösl will be presenting a new series at the Kunsthaus Bregenz titled Räumliche Sequenz [Spatial Sequence] specially produced for the occasion. The work consists of plaster panels in three different sizes grouped in threes, the order of each trio beginning with the smallest and ending with the largest format. The progression of the 45-piece series of 15 subjects, subtitled Cliché, takes its lead from the Bauhaus artist László Moholy-Nagy’s enamel pictures.
In contrast to Moholy-Nagy, who delegated the task in the case of his telephone pictures to a specialist firm, Pumhösl himself applies the formal effects to his panels using what he refers to as a cliché stamp.
