The Private Perspective

Brus in Styrian Private Collections

04.07.-26.10.2014 10:00-17:00


Opening: 03.07.2014, 7 p.m.
Curated by: Roman Grabner
Venue: BRUSEUM

Although the former actionist, illustrator, picture-poet and writer Günter Brus was brandmarked ‘Austria’s most hated man’ in an unprecedented attack by the Austrian tabloids, and subsequently sentenced to ‘strict arrest’, necessitating his overnight departure from the country, there have time and again been collectors who have found something of themselves in his art, which is probably rather difficult to put in words.

 

The exhibition The Private Perspective allows an insight into Styrian collecting activity, showing the varied approaches to the work of Günter Brus. Who has purchased a work by Brus and for what reason, and what does it mean to her or him after all these years? The Private Perspective supplants the art history viewpoint of his work, revealing unexpected perspectives on both familiar and as yet unseen material.
