About the exhibiton

Like William Blake, August Strindberg or Günter Brus, Victor Hugo is one of those rare double talents who have achieved works of enduring value in two artistic metiers. During his lifetime he was already highly esteemed for his literature, while his drawings were long known only to a small circle of insiders.

It was artists who rediscovered his work and drew attention to it at the beginning of the 20th century, and Günther Brus has also always made reference to it, whether consciously or unconsciously.

Brus Collection Exhibition – in parallel with Victor Hugo

The BRUSEUM owns the most extensive museum collection on the life and work of the artist in existence, and is dedicated as an institution to the preservation of and research into his work, as well as educating others and presenting the same.

The changing selection of collection items in the BRUSEUM’s first room shows the continuity of motives and working processes of his artistic output that spans more than five decades.

In 2017 there will be three exhibitions curated by Roman Grabner.
