HOOVER. HAGER. LASSNIG
The exhibition is dedicated to three female artists who are worth rediscovering or even completely rediscovering: Nan Hoover, Anneliese Hager and Maria Lassnig - three artists who expressed themselves experimentally and innovatively in different media and who were concerned with alienation effects, body perception and reflection on time and space. All three dealt with Surrealism early on and found their own individual visual language in different ways: the unifying factor is the preoccupation with light, space and the body as well as the existential question of self-perception and locating oneself in the world. Hager, who is one of the most interesting female photographers of the 20th century, has remained practically unknown, while the American Nan Hoover was one of the pioneers of international light, video and performance art. The Austrian painter Maria Lassnig is today one of the most important artists of the 20th century, but only achieved her international breakthrough late in the 1980s.
