Body & Soul at ESSL MUSEUM

Body & Soul at the ESSL MUSEUM is devoted to the human body in all its facets. The exhibition places the topic in a wider social context and traces its evolution up to the present. In the 20th century, Western society revolutionised and redefined its relationship with the body, but also brought problematic aspects to light. Artists reflected these developments, particularly after 1945. Post-war Austria saw the head-on confrontation between hypocritical sexual morals and far-reaching denial and sub-culture avant-gardes like the Vienna Actionism striving to overcome these obstacles. The human body may serve as platform for the expression of inner states and feelings, as exemplified by Maria Lassnig’s body awarenes paintings; it can be a metaphor for metaphysical notions, or may celebrate beauty beyond social norms.06.04.2016 - 30.06.2016
