Lentos Featured Artist Crossing Europe 2023: VALIE EXPORT. Katharina Gruzei, Ann Oren, Ulrike Ottinger
A long-standing cooperation links Lentos Kunstmuseum and Crossing Europe – and in 2023, both institutions are celebrating their 20th anniversary. Lentos Kunstmusem takes this as an opportunity to organize a “Featured Artist” exhibition in the rooms of its collection, which puts the spotlight on female European artists.
Featured works include, among others, the film Freak Orlando by filmmaker, photographer and painter Ulrike Ottinger, the photo series Bodies at Work by photographer and filmmaker Katharina Gruzei, paintings from Apolonia Sokol and video works by media artist VALIE EXPORT.
The catchphrase “Crossing Europe” is the literal guiding thread: The focus is on a wide variety of feminist positions and their impression on the cinematic and photographic landscape of the past 50 years.
