Parallel to the exhibition in the Austrian Pavilion in Venice this year, a landmark publication titled
Austria and the Venice Biennale 1895-2013 will be launched in Vienna today. This scholarly, 540-page publication presents for the first time a comprehensive overview of each individual exhibition, with the help of previously unpublished photographs, plans and correspondence drawn from public and private archives in many different countries, including the extensive holdings of the Archivio Storico delle Arti Contemporanee (ASAC), Venice.
The list of artists that have represented Austria at the Venice Biennale over the last 120 years includes many of the leading figures of its cultural avant-garde: from Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oscar Kokoschka, through Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Arnulf Rainer and Walter Pichler to Valie Export, Maria Lassnig and Franz West.
