"HERMAN NITSCH - Life and Work"
20.05.2018 - 26.04.2020

An exhibition about the person Hermann Nitsch, his life and his work.

The year 2018 is marked by the 80th birthday of Hermann Nitsch. On this occasion, the nitsch museum is presenting the exhibition “Hermann Nitsch – Life and Work”. Born at the start of the war, he grew up in the post-war years and was convicted several times because of his art. Today the artist is a state prize winner and a celebrated global star. In the biographical exhibition, his extraordinary life not only as an artist but, for the first time, also as a person is being examined.

In the form of a 130-metre long exhibition tour the artist’s career is portrayed and, with the help of key works and original documents, the most important stages of his life are illustrated. The journey through time focuses on Nitsch’s artistic work in the last 65 years and on personal events which had a major influence on his development. The tour is augmented by a 130-metre long frieze above it containing works from the universal artist’s different areas of activity.

The biographical exhibition enables visitors to understand the extraordinary life of Hermann Nitsch, to recognise connections between his life and his work and, in this way, to discover new findings about the person and his complete oeuvre.
