availability unknown, if interested please write an email

Exhibition Booklet Structured as a narrative, exhibition Prosperous Poison arranges the holdings of mumok’s collection from 1945 to the present into five chapters.

Careful study of the artworks themselves, the artistic positions associated with them, and the structure of the collection as a whole brought to light the cultural, social, political, and economic developments and discourses that had influenced the works and their collection history. Questions came up: How to handle the texts, facts, pictures, how to turn them to one’s own purposes? And how to confront one’s own ambivalence—between desire and critique? Language: English
