The Albertina holds a comprehensive retrospective dedicated to the internationally-acclaimed Vienna artist Arnulf Rainer on his 85th birthday.
Rainer has always been to the forefront of developments in abstraction, from his so-called Destruction of Forms to the Vienna Actionism movement. He is also remembered for throwing himself into his work, from body art to painting while under the influence of drugs.
His experimentation and constant search for new artistic paths is revealed in this exhibition which charts his long career using key works from his early days to recent times.
On show are more than 120 pieces, from international museums and private collections, including his over-paintings, crucifixes, Face Farces and Body Poses, death masks and veiled pictures.
