3 December 2011 – 4 March 2012
Egon Schiele is one of the most popular modernist artists, who stands like almost no other for the close relationship between an artist’s work and life. His early tragic death, his turbulent friendship with his model Wally, and the Neulengbach affair, in which he was imprisoned for twenty-four days in 1912 for allegedly seducing a minor, have all led to ongoing public interest in his private life. His best-known works have therefore often been seen in terms of this narrow focus on the autobiographical – nudes of young women showing their sex in provocative poses, and seemingly pathological self-stylisation.

The new exhibition, which is comprised of works from the company’s collection, focuses on the work “Echo,” a new acquisition by the Berlin-based artist Katja Eckert. The pair of images reflects the collection’s interest in the dialogue between painting and photography. Various methods of approaching and appropriating reality are concealed behind the seemingly media-specific subject matter.
Sylvie Fleury: WRITTEN ON THE WALL II
May 17 until August 1, 2010
Swiss artist Sylvie Fleury combines in her work divergent topics like esotericism and trash, fashion and motorsports, science fiction and art history. By connecting separate spheres she often plays off gender differences against each other: Soft, feminine bodies counter the masculine geometry of Stacks by Donald Judd. In advertising slogans for cosmetics she discovers an aesthetic relationship with the text pieces of Joseph Kosuth.
