Kunsthalle Wien – Nina Vobruba/​Malte Zander + Time is Thirsty

Published Categorised as Art & Design, Austria, Travel No Comments on Kunsthalle Wien – Nina Vobruba/​Malte Zander + Time is Thirsty

The Kunsthalle Wien holds tempor­ary exhib­i­tions- I caught the last day of this show. It defin­itely isn’t the best thing I’ve seen there- I’ve previ­ously been to block­buster Basqui­at, Haring and Švank­ma­jer shows there, but it was included in the Combi-tick­et I bought for the other museums, so I made sure to see it.

This show was about a disused army base in rural Austria that has been turned into an artist’s community. The items and mater­i­als taken away from the base to de-milit­ar­ise it were re-assembled into the exhib­i­tion in the art museum.

Digging up the tarmac and stamp­ing on it.

The remains of the asphalt.

This exhib­i­tion was based on the year 1992, the year the hall was built. Despite the well-known names I thought it was a real let-down.

I did however like this large expanse of greasy glit­tery substance that smeared across the floor when people walked on it.

I also ended up with a hanky, pencils, note­book and assor­ted posters for €3 from the museum bargain bin.
