AUSTRIA. The Technisches Museum Wien and the ERSTE Foundation have set up a partnership for the first time
26/03/2012 10:47:47

The Technisches Museum Wien and ERSTE Foundation are exploring new ground, engaging technology and art in dialogue. For the exhibition entitled AT YOUR SERVICE – ART AND LABOUR, artists Pavel Braila, Anna Jermolaewa, Daniel Knorr and Ulrike Lienbacher have been invited to produce new art works on the theme of labour. The works are to be integrated into the Museum’s permanent exhibition as art interventions. Videos by Harun Farocki, Adrian Paci, and Anne Tallentire complement the spectrum.

The show involves 7 artists from 7 different countries. All of them left their hometown to work abroad. Pavel Braila from Moldova lives not only in Chisinau but also in Berlin which is home for the Romanian artist Daniel Knorr as well as for Haroun Farocki who was born in the Czech Republic. Anna Jermolaewa came from Russia to Vienna and Austrian Ulrike Lienbacher from the village Oberndorf. The Albanian artist Adrian Paci lives and works now in Milan, Italy, and Anne Tallentire moved from Northern Irland to London.

The artists pointedly address a range of topical issues: Work affects everyone and opinions about it are many and diverse. Paid labour is largely considered a social good, providing the opportunity for social recognition, and thereby serves as an important aspect in personal identity.

At the start of the exhibition, the film “Making of” tells about the work on the exhibition and the production of the artworks.

Together with the AT WORK exhibition, AT YOUR SERVICE - ART AND LABOUR represents this year’s focus by the Technisches Museum Wien on this complex issue. For the AT YOUR SERVICE exhibition the Technisches Museum Wien and the ERSTE Foundation have set up a partnership for the first time.
