The Big Invisible

Hoofd van het Jac. P. Thijsse Lab Yasmine Ostendorf cureerde samen met Jade Niklai de tentoonstelling The Big Invisible in Kunst Haus Wien, in Wenen, Oostenrijk. De tentoonstelling is de uitkomst van het Curator-in-Residence programma waaraan beide curatoren hebben deelgenomen in 2017, en waarin onderzoek naar duurzaamheid en sociale praktijken in de Oostenrijkse kunst centraal stond.

Over de tentoonstelling:
The Big Invisible showcases new and recent works by five contemporary artists addressing key issues of our times, many deriving from unchallenged human attitudes and behaviours towards nature on a global scale. The artworks consider real-life issues, including viruses, air pollution, heat waste, nuclear radiation and an imaginary oil spill, to provide new insights into the invisible world around us.

Works by John Gerrard (IRL/AT), Markus Hoffmann (DE), Hanna Husberg (FIN/AT), Markus Jeschaunig (AT), and Pei-Ying Lin (TW/NL)

Jade Niklai is an independent curator based in Vienna and founder/director of Blood Mountain Foundation, a cross-disciplinary arts foundation focusing on Central Europe.
Yasmine Ostendorf is an independent researcher/curator and head of the Jac. P. Thijsse Lab at the Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht.

Open tot 14 januari 2018
