Attersee – the universal artist

Christian Ludwig Attersee is not only one of the most important painters of his generation and this country but also a passionate singer and composer, author, stage designer, performance artist, filmmaker and photographer. There is hardly an artistic form of expression that Attersee does not claim for himself. In his long career, the all-rounder has gradually leveled the artistic boundaries between pop and modernism, between free and applied art. The Belvedere 21 pays tribute to the internationally renowned painter and co-founder of "New Austrian Painting" with a comprehensive exhibition.

From Viennese Actionism to European Pop Art

The exhibition on the upper floor of Belvedere 21 focuses in particular on the first 20 years of Attersee's work, in which the artist formulates the complex diversity of his entire oeuvre. Creations from numerous genres such as drawings, collages, paintings, photographic series, carpets, films, music, objects, selected product design and much more are shown. Attersee's unmistakable oeuvre is thus made accessible on a large scale and presented in a comprehensible manner.
