The gallery opens with an empty room.

Without a doubt, living and working conditions have significantly changed over the past years due to social, political and technological developments and visual references to existing pictures have become part of the artistic discourse. A work of art, thus, constantly reaches beyond itself as it refers, either consciously or unconsciously, to something that already exists. The history of art is always a history of mediation and appropriation, of models and patterns. But it is not solely about detecting models, but also about finding a certain cultural implication or institutionalization of art, the system, after all, that the model is part of.

The performance artists from different countries and cultural backgrounds who have been invited shall at the opening or in the course of the following week, spontaneously present action-focused or ephemeral artistic performances dealing with the art of appropriation, either at the gallery or somewhere in the city.

It is up to the individual artists how they will later choose to document their performance at the gallery. The exhibition APPRORIATION consists of two parts, the first one presenting a two-week performance festival, which is followed by the second part, entitled APPROPRIATION |INTERPICTORIALITY | PART 2, which will be opened at the famous Vienna Gallery Weekend (29.5.-31.5.). Both exhibitions are complemented by lectures and discussions on the topic of appropriation by artists and renowned scientists in cooperation with Bildrecht | Bildraum07.

The results of the performance-program will be shown in NEXT DOOR and UNTERER STOCK during the Vienna Gallery Weekend.
