Stella Rollig in conversation with Siegfried Anzinger

Sunday, 6 March 2011

Siegfried Anzinger is one of Austria's internationally most  renowned painters and graphic artists.
In his latest work, the charismatic artist is heading off to hitherto uncharted artistic terrain, where he is welcomed by such trademark companions as the tragi-comical, the grotesque and erotic satire.
Anzinger, always confrontational, never averse to taking risks and a master of classical technique, works with no holds barred and at a furious pace. Disdaining trends and fashions, he uses pencil and brush to maximum effect. Unpredictable for critics and collectors, he allows high and low to clash in his work and brings wit and mordant irony to bear on the contemporary artistic discourse.

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).
