26 Sept 2008-6 Jan 2009. The first comprehensive retrospective dedicated to Christian Schad (1894-1982), considered the main German representative of the New Objectivity Movement in Austria who was also associated with the Dada movement. He was inspired by Cubism and created his own version of photograms, the so-called Schadographs, in which he created art from discarded objects such as torn tickets, receipts and rags. On display are about 130 works by Schad, among which 50 are paintings and about 45 works by his contemporary artists such as Jean Cocteau, Otto Dix, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, George Grosz and Jeanne Mammen, who were inspired by Schad
