The Heidi Horten Collection is home to a masterpiece by Gustav Klimt entitled Church in Unterach on Lake Attersee, created between 1915 and 1916. The artwork will be featured in one of the “Kabinett” rooms alongside graphic works by artists of the same period. These works are juxtaposed in dialogue with contemporary works from the Heidi Horten Collection. The unifying element is the square – Klimt's trademark, as it were – which gained exceptional popularity in "Vienna around 1900" and has since been adopted by an astonishing number of contemporary artists.
The exhibition curated by Tobias G. Natter will be accompanied by a catalogue that inaugurates a series of publications on Focus on, a new exhibition series of the Heidi Horten Collection.
