Body Psyche & Taboo
Vienna Actionism and Early Vienna Modernism



The central concepts of Body, Psyche, and Taboo is a presentation of both the intellectual and the formal links between Vienna Actionism and artistic developments in early 20th century Vienna.

Works by Günter Brus, Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, and Rudolf Schwarzkogler – the ‘scandal artists’ of the 1960s – are compared and contrasted with pieces by their equally controversial colleagues working at the dawn of the twentieth century, including Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, and Egon Schiele, among others.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition Body, Psyche, and Taboo: Vienna Actionism and Early Vienna Modernism at mumok, Vienna, 4 March – 16 May 2016.

Striking and heavily illustrated catalogue featuring the work of Artists Günter Brus, Richard Gerstl, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Koloman Moser, Otto Muehl, Hermann Nitsch, Max Oppenheimer, Anton Romako, Egon Schiele, Rudolf Schwarzkogler, and accompanying texts by Eva Badura-Triska, Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer, Rosemarie Brucher, and Bernadette Reinhold.

Painting 2.0
Expression in the Information Age

The resurgent interest in contemporary painting in recent years has coincided with an explosion of new digital media and technologies. Contrary to canonical accounts premised on medium-specificity, painting’s most advanced positions since the 1960s have developed in productive friction with contemporaneous forms of mass media and culture. From the rise of television and computers to the Internet revolution, painting has assimilated precisely those cultural and technological developments that were held responsible for its presumed “death.” Moving far beyond its technical definition as “oil on canvas,” painting during the information age has consistently offered a site for negotiating the challenges of a mediated life-world.

Featuring over 230 works by 107 artists, Painting 2.0 is one of the largest and most comprehensive exhibitions of contemporary painting in recent years.
