A museum for Günter Brus

27.11.2011-09.04.2012 10:00-17:00


Opening: Sat. 26.11.2011
Curated by: Anke Orgel, Peter Weibel
Venue: BRUSEUM

With the opening of the Neue Galerie Graz in the Joanneum Quarter, the comprehensive collection of works by the Austrian artist Günter Brus is presented to the public in the newly founded BRUSEUM. The exhibition emphasises Brus’ importance as a “panartist or polyartist of renaissance-like stature” (Peter Weibel) with a selection of the artist’s various creative areas and phases – from Viennese Actionist to painter, drawer, picture-poet and writer. Besides early informal works and photographic and filmic documentaries of Actions between 1964 and 1970, which illustrate his international status as a key artist of Body Art, Brus’ radical, post-Actionist phase of the early 1970s is conveyed by way of example. Moreover, picture-poems, drawings and printed graphics cover a time-span from the 1970s to the present day, explaining the complexity of his work as well as providing evidence of his significance as a world-class artist. 

The BRUSEUM collection is documented by a comprehensive publication.
