Gottfried Helnwein

Until 13 October 2013

Gottfried Helnwein is one of the most important internationally known Austrian artists. On the occasion of his 65th birthday, the ALBERTINA Museum is dedicating the first retrospective of his works in Europe to him.
 
More than 150 works from all phases of his career provide insight into Helnwein's creative work, which is characterized by a pointed dialogue with society, its bête noires and taboo subjects. He primarily became known for his hyperrealistic paintings of wounded and bandaged children. Even Disney figures take on a menacing aspect in Helnwein's works. Pain, injury and violence are recurring motifs in his unsettling and disturbing works.
