As in the past, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg’s rich collections are a mainstay of our exhibition programming. all natural. 100% Collections, the new installment in our long-running series of thematic presentations of art from our holdings, brings the strained relationship between humans and nature into focus. Photographic portraiture, meanwhile, is the point of departure in Humanity in Photographs, an exhibition for which we draw on the treasures in the Austrian Federal Photography Collection.
In Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Asger Jorn, our exhibition program stars two eminent exponents of the European avant-garde. Kirchner was arguably the only German Expressionist who explored the possibilities of photography in depth. Our exhibition will be the first extensive presentation of his photographic oeuvre in Austria. The retrospective of Jorn’s printed oeuvre will bring another Austrian premiere. And thanks to a generous loan from the Museum Jorn in Silkeborg/Denmark, our show will be the first anywhere in the world to display the complete set of around 550 prints.
In the summer of 2019, the fruits of the renowned Israeli artist Sigalit Landau’s sustained creative engagement with the Dead Sea will be on view in Salt Years. The concurrent grand exhibition Fly Me to the Moon. The Lunar Landing, 50 Years Later will offer a thematically focused survey of how the first manned lunar mission reshaped our view of the world and influenced and inspired artists. An excellent occasion for fresh reflections on humanity’s place in the universe.
