Maria Lassnig Ways of being

Albertina Gallery presents the exhibition "Maria Lassnig
Ways of being
", which showcases the impressive work of one of the most prominent female artists of the 20th century.

Among the many topics that Maria Lassnig devoted herself throughout her life (including self-portraits, science fiction, relationships with people, animals, and technology), the main focus is on the visual awareness of her body consciousness.

Back in the late 1940s, Lassnig placed her body at the center of her work - long before physical feelings, body language, and gender relations became central themes of the international avant-garde. Thus, she marked an important turning point in the history of contemporary art, the echoes of which can still be heard today.
