The Shape of Time (dt. Ausg.)
Ausst.Kat. Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, 2018
The collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna represent some 5,000 years of human creativity from Ancient Egypt through to European painting around 1800. „The Shape of Time“ presents a group of artworks dating from 1800 to the present day by remarkable artists such as Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Claude Cahun, Mark Rothko, Maria Lassnig, Steve McQueen or Peter Doig. The ‘guests’ have been carefully placed within the rooms of our Picture Gallery, each in active dialogue with one work of art from the Kunsthistorisches Museum. As stepping stones they lead our visitors from the point at which the Museum’s collections end to the point at which we find ourselves today. The catalogue provides fascinating insights into this unique gathering of artworks.
