To mark its assumption of the Ploner Collection, the ALBERTINA Museum is mounting an exhibition on the development of abstract painting and drawing in Austria since 1960. This presentation sets a number of the newly received works in relation to selected drawings and paintings from the ALBERTINA Museum’s extensive holdings.

This exhibition encompasses around 125 works and covers the most important aspects of this radical development from the abstraction of the human figure practiced by Josef Mikl, Jürgen Messensee, and Hans Staudacher to the figurative and vegetative silhouettes by Gunter Damisch and on to the highly abstracted experiments with color and materials produced by Erwin Bohatsch, Hubert Scheibl, and Herbert Brandl.
