EXPERIENCE HUNDERTWASSER UP CLOSE:
ART – ARCHITECTURE – ECOLOGY
The Hundertwasser Museum is showcasing the world's largest
permanent exhibition of works by the outstanding Austrian
artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 -2000), including
famous paintings, prints, architectural models and tapestries.
Situated just a few streets away from the "Hundertwasser
Haus" on the Danube Canal, the exhibition provides
the perfect location to immerse yourself in the artist's
world of creativity and architecture: inside there are
colourful walls and uneven floors, while outside Hundertwasser
created the artistic façade using tiles and panels of
colour. Two particular highlights of the Kunst Haus Wien
are the roof garden with Hundertwasser's private studio
apartment, and the living façade. The inner courtyard
with its trees and potted plants provide the perfect opportunity
to linger after a visit to the museum.
VIENNA'S "GREEN MUSEUM"
365 days a year, come rain or shine, the artist's visionary
passion for ecology is on show to visitors in Vienna's
first "green museum": Hundertwasser was a man
who actively campaigned for environmental protection early
on, battling to preserve the Hainburger flood plain and
creating the logo for the Austrian environmental symbol.
In an architectural context, he anticipated many of the
developments of present-day "green architecture"
back in the 1980s with his façades and living roofs. Based
on his pioneering ideas on ecology and social policy,
the Kunst Haus Wien's special exhibitions provide a space
for dedicated artists and creative individuals to take
a critical and visionary look at issues such as sustainability,
climate change, recycling, town planning and cross-generational
responsibility from a modern-day perspective.
INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITIONS
Beyond that, the KUNST HAUS WIEN is Vienna´s premier house
for photography. Changing exhibitions introduce the biggest
names of photography such as Annie Leibovitz, René Burri,
Robert Mapplethorpe, Man Ray and Henri Cartier-Bresson
to a wide audience. In the past temporary exhibitions
have been devoted to such illustrious artists as Andy
Warhol, Christo, Picasso, Keith Haring, Niki de Saint
