In the first of a three-part exhibition series at the Wien Museum, Hubert Scheibl’s vibrant painting ‘Aktuell’ will be on display until 1 July in ‘Die 90er Jahre’. Curated by Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer and Berthold Ecker, ‘The 90s’ offers a panoramic view of Vienna’s art scene during that decade. It is an exhibition of unprecedented breadth, featuring 255 works by 245 artists displayed in three consecutive acts at the iconic museum.
“It was a time of upheaval in Europe: the Iron Curtain had fallen and the Cold War was over. As globalisation gained momentum, Vienna moved closer to the heart of international developments. The situation was perfectly illustrated by art itself, and Vienna became the focal point of a European cultural scene that was opening up to the East. Diversity in all artistic media was the defining characteristic of the decade.”
