Sigalit Landau
Salt Years

July 6-November 17, 2019
Mönchsberg [3]
Rupertinum [1] & [2]

For the past 15 years, the sculptor and video and installation artist Sigalit Landau (b. 1969) has kept going back to the Dead Sea as a source of inspiration and laboratory. It has been the scene of the genesis of numerous works; in particular, she “baptizes” various objects and fabrics (clothes, bodices, etc.) by immersing them in the world’s saltiest sea for months, creating fascinating metamorphoses that often probe questions of female identity and bodily experience. The shadows cast by the Holocaust, the tense political situation in Israel, and complex issues of justice, structural violence, and the economic exploitation of nature are other concerns that her powerful and multifaceted works explore. The exhibition includes several readymades baptized in the Dead Sea and a selection from Landau’s most important works on video.

Curators: Thorsten Sadowsky, Director, with Marijana Schneider, Curatorial Assistant

Fly Me to the Moon
The Lunar Landing, 50 Years Later

July 20-November 3, 2019
Mönchsberg [4]

The exhibition undertakes an excursion into art history, gathering artists’ renditions and interpretations of the moon since the days of Galileo Galilei and the invention of the first telescope. Looking back on several centuries of human fascination with the moon, with an emphasis on the twentieth century and the present, it includes copperplate prints and paintings as well as photographs, video art, and multimedia installations. A catalogue in German and English will be published in conjunction with the exhibition. The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the Kunsthaus Zürich and co-curated by Cathérine Hug. With generous support from Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council

Collection—Hidden Treasures
December 7, 2019-March 15, 2020
Mönchsberg [3] & [4]

We will mount a thoroughly redesigned presentation of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg’s heterogeneous holdings, using every square inch of the galleries’ walls and floors. An expedition into the less familiar regions of the collections, the grand exhibition will also unearth treasures that have not seen the spotlight of a public presentation in decades. A sophisticated and visually appealing tableau encapsulating the museum’s collections, it will exemplarily illustrate art-historical classificatory principles and the changing practice of exhibition-making.

Curators: Thorsten Sadowsky, Director, with the Curatorial Team
