Portrait of Arik Brauer
© Mijou Kovacs: Arik auf Schloss Rastenberg, März 2001.

Mazel tov, Arik Brauer!

After 1945, Brauer studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. It was precisely at this time that the young Jewish painter dedicated himself to a form of painting that stood out completely from the abstract art world. Starting from Surrealism, he developed fantasy figures and worlds in the master class of Albert Paris Gütersloh. This so-called Viennese School of Fantastic Realism is so different and new that, despite the reservations of art critics, it soon celebrated its first success stories.

And this success was to accompany Brauer throughout his life. His songs were just as successful as his paintings. Typical for him: his sharp and critical view of socially relevant topics and his love of the Viennese dialect. All of this made him a pioneer of Austropop even then. With the construction of the house on Gumpendorfer Strasse in Vienna, the universal artist finally expands his oeuvre and shows once again that an artist does not have to stop at the easel.

Of painted stories and sung poems.

The exhibition All my arts is not limited to Arik Brauer's painting alone. From ceramics to music, dance, stage design and architecture, the Jewish Museum Vienna now presents the diverse work of the universal artist. And in doing so manages to establish a close connection between his work and Vienna, Israel and Judaism.

Arik Brauer. All my arts.
