theartVIEw: Utopie GESAMTKUNSTWERK at 21er Haus

The 21er Haus opens with a contemporary view on the idea of the gesamtkunstwerk from the 1960s to very recent positions by young artists, in which the spectacular display architecture of gigantic black cubes by Esther Stocker turns the museum and the artworks on show really into a gesamtkunstwerk. Bettina Steinbrügge and Harald Krejci have chosen 54 austrian and international positions for "Utopie GESAMTKUNSTWERK", among them are Walter Pichler, Joseph Beuys, Liam Gillick, Una Szeemann, Jason Rhoades, Gelitin, Thomas Hirschhorn, Paul McCarthy, Christoph Schlingensief or Markus Schinwald. Until May 20, 2012.
