The Museum der Moderne oversees an own extensive collection as well as the Federal Government’s Photography Collection, the Generali Foundation Collection, and the art collection of the State of Salzburg. The museum’s task is to preserve the collections entrusted to it according to conservational principles, to expand its holdings, to make these accessible to scholarship, and to exhibit them to the public. The museum is always guided by strategic considerations when adding to its holdings. It might desire to fill in gaps in its collection in a meaningful way, to expand an existing group of works, or to establish new focal points for its collection.

It is rare for a museum’s collecting policy to be discussed in public. Significant policy decisions are made behind the scenes by the director of the museum in consultation with the curators of its collections. This is why the Museum der Moderne Salzburg has decided to organize a large-scale exhibition of its [...]

Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler: Collaborations

Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler: Collaborations

Departing from the focuses of the mumok collections on the avant-garde of the 1960s and 1970s as well as conceptual and socio-analytic approaches in contemporary art, the exhibition Collaborations examines diverse strategies of collective authorship. The exhibition builds a bridge spanning from the smallest to the largest unit of togetherness: from the internal ties of the collective to a particular constellation of the connective, from the artist duo to society—and last but not least, from the love affair to the interconnectedness of life.

The exhibition investigates how artistic models of a “we” can be cultivated for life together as a society: What does collaboration mean in the twenty-first century when fundamental social structures continue to dissolve? How have artists responded to such social and political developments over the decades and what is their position today?

Nilbar Güreş: Biennale Bregaglia 2022

Vicosoprano, Switzerland, 11.06.—24.09.2022

Nilbar Güreş: Biennale Bregaglia 2022

Nilbar Güreş, Landscape, Landscape, Biennale Bregaglia 2022, Michel Gilgen

Güreş plants an iron plant in the garden in front of the church of San Cassiano, which bends under the weight of its fruit. With colourful leaves and exotic-looking fruit, the sculpture contrasts with the towering barren rock faces of the Bergell. The artist invites the public to use her work as a backdrop for photographs, to share them on social media and thus appropriate the work through media. With Landscape, Landscape, Güreş raises questions about gender conventions and queerness, as well as traditionally female and male craft.

Roman Ondak: Measuring the Universe

Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany, 03.06.–25.09.2022

Roman Ondak: Measuring the Universe

For the first time in 15 years, a performance by the artist Roman Ondak (*1966) can be experienced again, which was created especially for the Pinakothek der Moderne. The concept of "Measuring the Universe" ("Das Universum vermessen") is simple: the height of the museum visitors is recorded on the wall - in the way parents mark the growth of their children to give them a sense of the dimension of time. An everyday, actually private action becomes the center of attention and is transformed into a public and collective action. During the exhibition period, a drawing is created on the wall that becomes denser and blacker. In the end, all the people will be present at the same time, although they will all have left as well.

Roman Signer: Before. Between. Beyond. The collection in transition

Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, Switzerland, 15.05. – 07.08.2022

Roman Signer: Before. Between. Beyond. The collection in transition

Roman Signer, Uhr (12.20), Metall (Ikea-Uhr), 3 x 29,5 x 26,6 cm, Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau

The Collection — the cornerstone of the Aargauer Kunsthaus — is growing apace, and today consists of over 20,000 pieces of Swiss art dating from the 18th century to the present day. In recent years, notable donations and loans — such as those from the Ringier Collection, the Federal Collection of Contemporary Art, the Walter A. Bechtler Foundation, or from patrons of the Aargauische Kunstsammlung — have contributed enormously to the outstanding importance of the collection in the European art scene. These additions, including many works by contemporary artists, serve as a source of fresh inspiration and form surprising associations within the portfolios.

Spread throughout the gallery space, the exhibition Before · Between · Beyond. The collection in transition describes new narrative arcs in three chapters, [...]
