... Line as Thought, Lines as Universe ...

... Line as Thought, Lines as Universe ... is an exhibition examining contemporary drawing practices in comparison with some pioneers of abstract drawing from the past several decades. The exhibition concept was first inspired by drawings made by the late Romanian artist, Alina Popa. During an illness and leading up to her death in 2019, Alina Popa produced an incredible body of drawings that profoundly depicted her experience. The other exhibited drawings in the exhibition veer into various conceptual and expressive directions, exploring the potential that drawing as an art form presents for depicting the inexpressible and the intangible, as well as circumnavigating ideas, space and the unknown in visual form, and ultimately testing the limits of language and thought.

Marlies Pöschl
Les Maintenants

Les Maintenants is the name of a fictitious company, as portrayed in Marlies Pöschl’s film Aurore, that produces robots capable of empathy. At the same time, the title of this exhibition suggests a plural version of “now” (maintenant)―a constantly repeated, eternal present. We may associate ideas of pausing, or the formulation of an alternative temporality that questions habitual rhythms and transcends standardized time zones. Pöschl is attracted to places that lie at the margins of society and therefore function according to their own logic. Temporality, care, and collectivity in a society shaped by technological changes are the themes the artist approaches in this exhibition.

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.
