ALBERTINA se nachází v historickém srdci Vídně a spojuje imperiální vkus s velkým uměním. Tato budova, bývalý okázalý habsburský palác a muzeum umění mezinárodního významu, láká dnes návštěvníky z celého světa, zvláště ty, kteří jsou zaměřeni na město a kulturu.

Muzeum tvoří díky střeše, kterou vytvořil v roce 2003 Hans Hollein, také architektonický ráz a v rámci svého rozmanitého výstavního programu představuje vynikající umělecká díla od 15. století až do současnosti. Speciální výstavy jako Albrecht Dürer, Van Gogh nebo Raffael dosáhly v minulých letech v ALBERTINĚ návštěvnických rekordů.

Navštivte 365 dní v roce stálé i speciální výstavy, od starých mistrů přes malířství klasické moderny až po současné umění, fotografii a architekturu a neopomeňte ani historické palácové prostory ALBERTINY.

To mark the occasion of Walter Schmögner’s seventy-fifth birthday, the Albertina presents a hitherto unknown aspect of the versatile Austrian artist’s production in its exhibition Sculptures and Objects. Recognized as a successful illustrator of children’s books and caricaturist of a cranky petty bourgeoisie in the 1960s, Walter Schmögner has been regarded as one of the exceptional figures in Austrian art history as a draftsman like Alfred Kubin, Fritz von Herzmanovsky-Orlando, or Walter Pichler since the 1970s. From 1999 to 2011, Walter Schmögner came to create objects made from pumpkins, pig bladders, osiers, rice paper, and hemp twines, including representational sculptures in which he identifies with a grotesque dog skeleton, for instance: “I, crouching, thinking.” These objects and sculptures derive from drawing in terms of both their content and form. Schmögner’s hard pencil still makes itself felt in their sharp outlines as does the caricaturist’s tragicomic self-irony. Whereas Schmögner paints spontaneously and does not use any preparatory drawings, he determines the shape, form, and color of his sculptures and objects as well as the material he will use beforehand. The artist distils man’s animal essence, as it were, exploring the continuing transformation of matter: a metamorphosis that results in ever-new forms and figures. […]

Erwin Wurm has long numbered among the global stars of contemporary art. And now, this exceptional Austrian artist’s drawings from recent years—drawings that exhibit great thematic and technical diversity—are the focus of an exhibition at the Albertina Museum. Whether he’s at home or traveling: Erwin Wurm take time to draw nearly every day. He does so on whatever paper happens to be at hand and in various qualities and formats, using pencils, colored pencils, ballpoint pens, or even watercolors. These drawings represent reflections and commentaries on the world and serve to record the artist’s ideas, thus encompassing his entire creative cosmos. Thematically, they are not unlike a diary, with his self-portraits being interspersed above all with images of the people with whom Wurm comes into contact, including artist-friends as well as members of his family. Furthermore, his works on paper also deal with well-known personalities from politics, art history, and cultural history in general. But despite their great thematic and technical diversity, all of Erwin Wurm’s drawings have in common his bitingly humorous view of the world and its human inhabitants, complete with all their inadequacies, as well as his keen sense of situational comedy and precarious moments.
