Katharina Sieverding’s Stauffenberg-Block (I–XVI /1969), from the permanent collection of the Kunstsammlung, forms the center of this exhibition in the Bel Etage of the K21. Due to its enormous dimensions, this ensemble – consisting of 16 large-format color photographs of the artist – can be shown only infrequently.
Tomás Saraceno - in orbit
until spring 2015 (estimated)
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.
