VALIE EXPORT The Archive as a Place of Artistic Research

November 10th, 2017 — January 28th, 2018

The exhibition space in the lower level of LENTOS will temporarily become the VALIE EXPORT Archive and provide insights into the artist’s thinking, research and development of ideas. In this way she becomes comprehensible as a public person, theorist, and teacher through an abundance of documents, autographs, sketches, and drafts, and also as a private person in letters, poems, photos and notes. In addition, the wealth of what has been “preserved” opens up a view of the artistic network and collective memory of a period of over fifty years.

Using various experimental modes of presentation, the exhibition approaches the artist’s extensive archive and conveys impressions of the scope of artistic research and processes of artistic production based on selected examples.
