Today I visited voestalpine Stahlwelt. Voestalpine Stahlwelt is a museum of voestalpine, one of the biggest european companies in steel production. The Museum is setteled in the company location in Linz (Austria). The Exhibition represents the history of the company and explains the production of steel.
Inside the voestalpine Stahlwelt hangs an enormous steel rotunda, modeled after a steel plant crucible. The crucible – the central world of discovery – features 80 large, chrome plated spheres measuring up to 2.5 meters in diameter and serving as brilliant points of reference. The biggest spheres include Video- and Soundpresentation. There are many Touch Screens to make your own choises and invite you to be part in this exhibition. After the opening of voestalpine Stahlwelt in 2009 the display and presentation is still on top and a perfect advertisement example for a company.
From June 3rd to June 8th we had a big flood in the region ofStrudengau.
Here you can find some Pics of the flood and clean up after the desaster. My studio was also desolated. The tide was 2,0 meters inside the studio. So I start a search for a new studio.

Very interesting exhibition about conceptual art! This show is the first part of a three part exhibition series through 2013 at the Generali Foundation. Good and clear displays, nice accesses in history of conceptual art!
To mark the 25th anniversary of the Generali Foundation, three international curators—Guillaume Désanges, Helmut Draxler, and Gertrud Sandqvist—will each organize a show using a unique presentation format to shed light from individual angles on the Generali Foundation’s collection, its institutional and exhibition policies, and hence its contribution to historiography on the basis of institutional work. Additional discussions and lectures taking place throughout this anniversary year will take their cue from the curators’ different personal approaches, the questions they raise concerning the definition of what is called Concept (Conceptual) art and what it means to collect and curate it, and their reflections on the relationship between Conceptual and historical display strategies and the artworks themselves. The first show is by French curator and critic Guillaume Désanges.
With works by Robert Barry, Gottfried Bechtold, Marcel Broodthaers, Ernst Caramelle, Lili Dujourie, VALIE EXPORT, Andrea Fraser, Bruno Gironcoli, Dan Graham, Hans Haacke, Sanja Iveković, Jarosław Kozłowski, Richard Kriesche, Friedl Kubelka, Dóra Maurer, Gordon Matta-Clark, Dennis Oppenheim, Ewa Partum, Adrian Piper, Martha Rosler, Gerhard Rühm, Allan Sekula, Goran Trbuljak, Ian Wallace, Peter Weibel, Franz West, and others.
curated by_vienna is a project that commissions co-operations between Vienna’s leading contemporary art galleries and internationally renowned curators. Now in its fourth year, curated by_vienna 2012 will be held in 22 galleries throughout the city, opening on September 20 and running until October 25.
Under the title art or life: aesthetics and biopolitics, this year’s project conceived by Eva Maria Stadler in cooperation with the galleries explores the interconnections between work, economy knowledge and politics. 25 curators have been invited to develop special exhibitions for the participating galleries.
Staged in paralell with the Viennafair (September 19–23, 2012) the electrifying Expo PARKFAIR is held for the second time this year and will present its theme-based ARTE NOAH 2012 exhibition on the third-floor parking deck of Vienna’s Stadion Center. Over five days, 49 contemporary artists explore the subject of „Judgment Day 2012“ through location-specific interventions, installations, performances as well as video and media art – an innovative discourse on contemporary Austrian art, which reflects on economic, social, and ecological awareness and responsibility.
