Alois Mosbacher

Out There

May 1 – June 20, 2004

In his exhibition Out There, specially conceived for the Secession, Alois Mosbacher premieres a block of works developed over the last few years comprising over 80 pictures and revolving around the theme of the woods as a space for outsiders, adventurers and drop-outs. By interlocking the classical media of painting and drawing with the language and spaces of virtual computer games, he expands his image-based research into complex narratives that present contemporary meaning potentials of the woods on various different levels. Characteristic of Mosbacher’s pictures is the fact that the figurations and motifs with which he deals are developed in dialogue with a discussion of painterly issues.


Alois Mosbacher, born in 1954, lives and works in Vienna.
