The exhibition FRANZ WEST Merciless is dedicated to the various aspects of the Austrian sculptor and installation artists work. Besides recent and most recent works by the artist, the presentation at the MAK centers around a powerful installation which West has created specifically for the central exhibition hall of the MAK and which constitutes his most comprehensive work so far. The presentation will be accompanied by the screening of numerous West videos as well as new public space installations in the immediate vicinity of the MAK.
