BODY AND LANGUAGE

CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY FROM THE ALBERTINA

18 June 2009 - 4 October 2009

Whatever their artistic origins or national provenance, Erwin Wurm, Gottfried Helnwein, Helmut Newton, Franz West, Chuck Close and John Coplans as well as Elke Krystufek and Marie Jo Lafontaine focus on the body, its qualities of expression, or text and body (image) combinations in their works. The exhibition Body and Language presents these artistic positions in a show comprising about 80 photographic works from the holdings of the Albertina.
