The Beginning. Art in Austria, 1945 to 1980
Albertina Modern
March 13 – August 2, 2020

The opening exhibition of ALBERTINA MODERN, entitled 'The Beginning. Art in Austria, 1945 to 1980', offers the first-ever comprehensive overview of a period that numbers among Austrian art history’s most innovative. The Beginning presents the most important artistic stances situated at the threshold of postmodernism—from the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism to early abstraction, Viennese Actionism, kinetic and concrete art, Austria’s own version of pop art, and the socially critical realism so characteristic of Vienna.
