As hinted at in the title, the exhibition revolves around a passion: the passion connecting the French-Austrian collecting couple Anne and Wolfgang Titze and fine arts. This is the first public appearance of a selection of ca. 130 works of around 90 artists, in a charming interplay between two venues of Vienna’s Belvedere Museum: the baroque interior of the Winter Palace and the modern pavilion architecture of the 21er Haus.

At the center of the exhibition at the 21er Haus, works by the pioneers of reduction of the 1950s and minimal and conceptual art of the 1960s converge. Recent trends in painting, sculpture and photography revolve around this junction and re-adopt issues of body, space, gesture and image. A steel sculpture by Bernar Venet, located between Upper Belvedere and castle pond, confronts historical architecture and contemporary form—a leitmotif that is continued in the Winter Palace. There, the site-specific presentation brings conceptual and figurative painterly approaches, such as post-war German art, works of Arte Povera, modern and post-modern sculpture in a variety of materials as well as current imagery in dialogue with the former residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy. 

Between the white museum wall and gilded stucco the exhibits unfold an interaction of appealing contrasts, which here and there opens up new perspectives both on the spaces as well as on the works staged in them.
