Megan Rooney
Green, I Want You Green

Megan Rooney is an enigmatic storyteller whose work expands across painting, performance, sculpture and installation. Born in South Africa, raised in Canada, and now living in London, the artist Megan Rooney blends both her styles of monumental abstract and intimate figurative painting with sculpture, dance and performance in her artistic practise. As artist in residence at the Salzburger Kunstverein in 2020, Megan Rooney has been invited to create a solo exhibition in the Main Gallery as well as an immersive, large-scale mural in the Ring Gallery, which will run for one year. Altogether these two exhibitions will be the largest single presentation for an artist ever presented at the Salzburger Kunstverein.

Luise Schröder
Memory Is a Ghost

In her artistic works (including photographs, videos and publications), Luise Schröder deals with the instrumentalization of the past as it pertains to a politics of the present. She examines the perpetuation of historical myths and their significance for various identities and communities. Her work also questions how official commemoration is influenced and constructed by political, social, and media developments. She focuses on both national forms of remembrance and global tendencies of commemoration, as well as their ritual character and iconography. The photographic image and its function as a form of collective social memory play a key role in her work.

Omer Fast. The Invisible Hand

In 2019, the Salzburger Kunstverein commissioned Omer Fast to make his astonishing film, Der oylem iz a goylem, based on a Jewish fairy-tale. From 2020 on we will present a long-term installation of Omer Fast’s VR-film The Invisible Hand, based on the same fairy-tale, as an expression of our ongoing collaboration with this world-renowned artist.
