Current Perspectives

Kunsthalle Krems, Österreich: 14 October 2023 - 01 April 2024

"In 2005, the British cultural radio station Radio 4 asked its listeners to come up a list of what they considered to be the worst sins. To many people’s surprise, laziness in its many forms appeared particularly often. Egoism, hypocrisy, intolerance, cruelty, and cynicism made the list as "new" sins.

The Kunsthalle Krems museum has invited 12 international and Austrian artists to address the topic of the seven deadly sins. They examine the deadly sins interdenominationally and address human and existential questions.

Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg is developing a video installation with the musician Hans Berg, which will be shown for the first time in Krems. Nedko Solakov from Bulgaria adresses the topic of the seven sins in his direct and humorous drawings, similar to Dan Perjovschi from Romania, whose drawings eventually become spatial installations. The Mexican artist Teresa Margolles, who already exhibited at Kunsthalle Krems in 2019, confronts visitors with human tragedy, whilst Russian-born Julia Belova’s porcelain and wax sculptures have an impressive baroque aesthetic. Other participating artists include Christa Biedermann, Ádám Dallos, Rob Frogoso, Èv van Hettmer, Jonathan Meese, Herta Müller and Ulrike Ottinger".
