The Kunsthaus Bregenz is pleased to showcase itself at the Austrian Cultural
Forum in New York as a leading international exhibition space for
contemporary art with particular emphasis on its significance in today’s
transatlantic artistic dialogue. At the core of the exhibition designed by
graphic artist Stefan Sagmeister is the overall concept of the
indivisibility of architecture, programming, publications, and education.
The exhibition as well as roundtable discussions with artists, curators,
critics, and architects will highlight the multifaceted picture of the idea
“Inside the Work” – a program and a specific curatorial approach, now four
years in the making, positing and exploring new artistic approaches to
artworks, architecture, and society.
