The Far East was considered a new point of reference for an open outlook on art in the 1950s. Like many European artists of his time, Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) creatively interpreted the ideas of Taoism and Zen-Buddhism. The basis for this was formed by a fascination for the wood carvings of the Japanese artists Hiroshige and Hokusai.
The exhibition entitled "Hundertwasser, Japan and the Avantgarde" uses selected works to show the influence of the Japanese Avantgarde on the early work of Hundertwasser. With over 40 works of the artist from international collections and numerous works of the international Avantgarde (including Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Lucio Fontana and Akira Kito), the show places this aspect of Hundertwasser's creativity in an international context for the first time.
