Lutz Bacher
What's Love Got to Do With It

September 07, 2018 – January 06, 2019
K21 Ständehaus

The American artist Lutz Bacher – who has concealed her identity beneath a masculine pseudonym throughout her career – works conceptually in a range of media. A longtime resident of California who now lives in New York, the artist has based her work since the 1970s on found objects as well as texts and images pulled from the minutiae of popular culture. Soundtracks from Hollywood films, props from television shows, and unedited cell phone videos find their way into her works along with discarded objects from different spheres of consumption.

Tomás Saraceno - in orbit

Permanent installation
K21 Ständehaus

Suspended more than 25 meters above the piazza of the K21 is Tomás Saraceno‘s gigantic installation in orbit. This steel wire construction spans the museum‘s vast glass cupola on three different levels. Positioned within this net structure, which encompasses altogether 2500 m², are half a dozen „spheres“ – inflated spheres having diameters up to 8.5 meters. Visitors have access to this transparent installation, and can move freely between the spheres on all three levels.
