In 1993 the US-American artist Andrea Fraser realised the exhibition project Eine Gesellschaft des Geschmacks with and at the Kunstverein München. In the run-up to it she interviewed Helmut Draxler and board members of the Kunstverein on questions of self-conception and taste. She arranged the answers into an audio collage that could be heard in the Kunstverein’s exhibition rooms, the written version was printed in a publication. Artworks borrowed from the board members that were partly mentioned in the audio installation were also part of the exhibition and publication.

Designed by Andrea Fraser and Anahita Krzyzanowski.

Heimo Zobernig

Published by Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna, 2014, 96 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 30 cm, German/English

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Heimo Zobernig, Mudam Luxembourg, April 29 – September 7 & kestnergesellschaft Hannover, 21 November 2014 – 2 Februrary 2015.

Heimo Zobernig (*1958 in Mauthen, Austria) occupies a central position in contemporary art with his diverse, genre- spanning work. The artist, who lives in Vienna, works with painting, sculpture, architecture, graphic and furniture design, video, performance and music. He often uses everyday materials such as cardboard, styrofoam, pressboard, linen and fluorescent lights to create his objects and spatial interventions. The unpretentious material, coupled with a simple, geometric use of forms, contributes to the soberly pragmatic impression.

With texts from Heinrich Dietz, Helmut Draxler, Veit Görner, Enrico Lunghi and Clément Minighetti
