Stella Rollig in conversation with VALIE EXPORT

Sunday, 28 November 2010

VALIE EXPORT, Prof. Dr.h.c. (born in Linz, lives and works in Vienna), is considered one of the most important pioneers of conceptual media art and of performance and film art. With her extensive work she is more present today than ever. In the past, VALIE EXPORT frequently met with opposition because of her critical outspokenness and the principled stand she has taken again and again. The denunciation of facile compromises and the struggle against defeatism and narrow-mindedness are still among her trademarks but now she can at least be sure that her views on topical subjects are heard and heeded. Whoever focuses exclusively on the criticism contained in her work, however, risks overlooking the constructived aspects: "Each work also has its positive sides!"

sundays at 11

The LENTOS features sundays at 11, a series of talks, for which the LENTOS invites well-known figures from the world of art and culture. With LENTOS’s artistic director, Hemma Schmutz, in the chair, they discuss their activities and experiences in and with the world of art. Not only do audiences get a chance to follow the discussion at close quarters, they are also invited to join in; in fact, contributions from the floor have become an indispensable part of the format. Before the Sunday morning talk an expanded Viennese breakfast is served as an additional feature (which you are of course free to skip if you want to).
