210311: Unteres Belvedere Dynamics! – Cubism, Futurism, Kinetic Art

Unteres Belvedere Dynamics! – Cubism, Futurism, Kinetic Art 10.02.11 – 29.05.11 More dynamics, no knowledge gain “Dynamics”! - the current exhibition in the Lower Belvedere - not only displays the Viennese phenomenon of kinetic art but also positions it in an international context. Curators Harald Krejci and Patrick Werkner present a selection of some well known, some less known, and some unknown works by the protagonists (this is probably the first and only art movement that was clearly dominated by women) as well as by some less established artists. Despite the relatively short time since the outstanding kinetics-exhibition at the Wien Museum five years ago remarkably few works were shown before. As opposed to the exhibition at the Wien Museum, the display at the Lower Belvedere not only concentrates on the multidimensional figure Franz Cisek – a member of the Neue Werkbund and later of the NSDAP – but also on how Johannes Itten influenced the Viennese art scene and the Hungarians, who had fled to Vienna after 1920, such as Bela Uitz, Lajos Kassák, Gyula Pap and Sándor Bortnyik. An earlier exhibition in Berlin at the Bauhaus Archive had already clearly shown that all of these artists played a major role in disseminating cubist and constructivist ideas – first in Vienna and then together with Itten in Weimar. Works by such diverse artists such as Lyonel Feininger, Robert Delaunay, Carlo Carrà, Giacomo Balla, Adolf Hoelzel, Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Franz Marc, Alexander Rodtschenko, Rudolf Steiner and El Lissitzky are also part of the exhibition - yet unfortunately without any explanations whatsoever. Their paintings are meant to offer a comparison to works by the Viennese artists Ullmann, Klien and Nechansky - and for those who wouldn’t know where to geographically or artistically position Alexandra Exter, Frantisek Kupka, Ljubov Popowa and Emil Filla, they offer practically no details at all - leaving one to assume that these are also kinetic artists. It should not be the main goal to curate an exhibition for experts, especially not at the Belvedere that is frequented by so many lay people.
