Curatorial Statement

The theme-based exhibition Viewpoints on Folklore addresses the concept of folklore and the associated visual representations in the works of contemporary artists. The exhibition brings together video works, photographs and installations by Helmut & Johanna Kandl, kozek hörlonski + Sir Meisi, and Sascha Reichstein. Curated by art historian Claudia Marion Stemberger, the viewpoints taken by the artists focus on multi-layered implications of folk culture. Do locational traditions still prove to be authentic or rather is folklore infused with a variety of connotations in present times?
