ARNULF RAINER

Hyper-Graphics
Thu, 17.05.2007–Sun, 26.08.2007

MAK Center L.A., Schindler House

Arnulf Rainer is one of the most renowned contemporary Austrian artists. His paintings are characteristic of the expressionism and actionism of post-World War II Viennese art. Highly innovative and theatrical, Rainer’s work explores the causes and limitations of artistic expression, pushing methodology and subject matter to extreme states of subjective experience. Rainer himself created the poster designs for almost all his exhibitions, as well as for collaborative cultural projects such as theater productions. For each poster, he produced a variety of designs and graphic detailing that were eventually brought together in the production process. ”Arnulf Rainer. Overwritings” will provide an insight into this intense and concentrated working method. The artist’s loan of the original drawings and designs for his posters to the MAK has made it possible to juxtapose the designs and the printed posters, surveying different stages in the work of along his exhibition history. The original drawings will be acquired for the MAK Collection Contemporary Art.

Asia Collection

Curator: Johannes Wieninger
The MAK Asia Collection consists of around 25,000 objects from China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam dating from between the Neolithic period and the present; these represent a wide range of artistic and artisan output from Asia and simultaneously provide insight into the centuries-long reciprocal relationship between Asia and Europe. Like other collections of its kind, the MAK Asia Collection is itself a work of Orientalism: all of the objects collected here were selected by Europeans and thus represent European tastes.
