In Spring 2021, a retrospective at Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien will offer one of the most comprehensive exhibitions ever of universal artist Daniel Spoerri, born in Romania in 1930.
The exhibition presents a body of work that began in the 1950s and continues to this day and which includes almost all artistic media and techniques.
Daniel Spoerri, who was active as a dancer, choreographer, actor, author, director, set designer, cook, and curator, among other things, found his place in art history in the early 1960s with his tableaux pièges, moments from everyday life that have been fixed in time and place and turned on their sides so that they can hang vertically on walls.
The exhibition curated by Veronika Rudorfer shows more than 100 keys works that reflect Spoerri’s versatility and passion for collecting. In addition, his legendary garden, the Giardino di Daniel Spoerri in Seggiano, Italy, can be experienced at the exhibition on various multimedia levels.
