Werner Feiersinger

February 29 – April 13, 2008

In his photographic works, collages, sculptures, and Contradictions between the dogmatic theoretical demands of classical Modernism and later classical Modernist works in architecture that do not strictly fulfill these demands provide the material for Werner Feiersinger’s work. He is interested in the mystification of Modernism as an embodiment of functionality and rationality, a myth generated by the written statements of prominent figures of the period and by their almost equally dogmatic and hence “uncritical” reception.


Werner Feiersinger, born in Brixlegg, Tyrol, in 1966, lives and works in Vienna.
