The opening of the exhibition: Friday, September 3, 2021 at 9.30 pm in the presence of collector and artists.
Opening speech: Stephanie Karner, director of the Austrian Cultural Forum Zagreb
Curated by Jerica Ziherl
The program was funded by the Österreichisches Kulturforum Zagreb-Austrian Cultural forum Zagreb, City of Novigrad-Cittanova, and the Ministry of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia.
As part of the exhibition program, the Novigrad Museum often presents public or private collections, which thematizes the relationship between artists and collectors, private and public, the art market or simply what all collectors have in common, a passion for collecting.
So this year we chose the Collection of Winfried Wuensch, owner of the Aircube Gallery in Linz, which started working in the 1990s and has become one of Austria’s important private collections of contemporary art including works by more than a hundred artists.
The exhibition presents Austrian and German artists dealing with abstract, conceptual and geometric art. Works by Croatian artists that Wuensch has been collecting for years will also be exhibited.
Artists presented at the exhibition: Josef Bauer, Ivan Contreras-Brunet, Eugen Gomringer, Jürgen Wolff, Franz Mon, Alain-Jaques Levrier-Muffat, Helmut Bruch, Renate Krammer, Günter Walter, Istvan Haasz, HD Schrader, Gerhard Rühm, Josef Linschinger, Vesna Kovačić, Ðanino Božić, Tomislav Brajnović, Reinhard Roy, Vaclav Malina, Siegfried Amtmann, Hasso von Henninges, Andreas Kocks, Ulrich Nausner, Gerhard Frömel, Ivo, Ringe, Otto Reitsperger, Vera Röhm, Estela Sokol, Hanns Herpich, Günther Uecker.
