Come & See! The Generali Foundation’s Film and Video Collection
Since its founding, the Generali Foundation has assembled one of the most important collections of media art since the 1960s, comprising many important Austrian and international positions. The focus is on media-reflective film and video art, political film, and feminist and performance-based video works. The media library in the Generali Foundation Study Center makes a large part of these films and videos accessible to all interested visitors on site at any time. In this way, the museum underscores the importance of free access to artistic film and video archives as an integral part of the cultural memory of the more recent past.
The exhibition Come & See! provides an in-depth and commented insight into the full range of this film and video collection on the basis of selected topics. In addition, a changing special program presents films and videos by Gottfried Bechtold, Sanja Iveković, VALIE EXPORT, and Harun Farocki in detail: four artists whose works are characterized by a particular media-artistic and sociopolitical relevance.
