Created with the support of the Hundertwasser Foundation, this exhibition immerses you in the work of painter and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 – 2000), who carried forward the spirit of the Vienna Secession several decades after its heyday, in an artistic revival of the revolution instigated by Klimt.
The exhibition begins with the emergence in the gallery of Hundertwasser’s ideal city, in a large, dynamic fresco composed of forms and colors that take shape with the rhythm of the music. Irregularly shaped windows animate brightly colored paintings, and layers of curving lines create a utopian world. Enter the scene and become part of the work: an explosion of color in which the life force and the elements of nature unfold in an endless spiral. Explaining the spirit of his painting and architecture, Hundertwasser said, “The straight line is a man-made danger because it is completely alien to mankind, to life, to all creation.”
