Oswald Oberhuber

Der ewige Prozess der Geburt

January 26 – February 19, 2006

To mark his 75th birthday, the Secession has invited its honorary member Oswald Oberhuber for an exhibition: it presents the essence of his wide-ranging contribution to the art and culture of this country–not only as an artist, but also as the curator of more than 150 exhibitions. This is also why he was in charge of designing the retrospective at the Secession; Robert Fleck, director of the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, assisted in the role of a discussion partner. In the Hauptraum, influential but little-known works are being shown again for the first time in many years. In the Grafisches Kabinett, sections of Austria’s recent art history are visible through the posters for exhibitions devised by Oberhuber.


Oswald Oberhuber, born in Meran in 1931, South Tyrol, lives and works in Vienna.
