Jakob Lena Knebl & Ashley Hans Scheirl
Seasonal Greetings
December 12, 2020–March 14, 2021

The exhibition by Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl will be opening in December 2020. The artists’ approach is playful, shrill, and lascivious. Their media include painting, photography, sculpture, and design, which are interwoven in scenery-like installations. Visitors to KUB will be able to experience an ice sea, a replica of the famous painting by Caspar David Friedrich, a walk-in witches’ sabbath, stagings of the self, floor paintings, advertising pillars, cyborg personas, and much more. As has so often been the case, the building is being transformed into stages that can be entered, creating unique spatial experiences.

In the basement at KUB, and to complement the main exhibition, we are presenting, for the first time in Austria, the work of the photographer Marcel Bascoulard.

Pamela Rosenkranz
March 27-July 4, 2021

The first solo exhibition by Pamela Rosenkranz in Austria will follow in spring 2021. Rosenkranz represented Switzerland at the 2015 Venice Biennial. The artist addresses the biological and chemical foundations of objects and commodities. She works with scents, earth and light, bacteria and parasites. Such existences below the human threshold of perception have been the subject of intellectual discourses in recent years. The virus too is an invisible presence. Rosenkranz formulates her artistic research as indelible but tranquil zones. These are spatially extensive, yet intimate experiences that are ideally suited to Kunsthaus Bregenz.

A new acquisition by Lois Weinberger is being presented as an addendum to the main exhibition in the basement at KUB, which likewise confronts nature, chemistry, and the environment.

Anri Sala
July 17-October 10, 2021

The 2021 summer exhibition is dedicated to Anri Sala. Originally planned for 2020, the exhibition was postponed for a year. It will be taking place to coincide with the Bregenz Festival. In collaboration with the festival, Kunsthaus Bregenz will also be bringing the opera Wind to the stage in 2021 in a world premiere. Sala likewise engages with the phenomena of music. Pieces of music become protagonists in his films, the exhibition is a visual-acoustic experience within space, an experience that is as immersive as it is technically elaborate.

Otobong Nkanga
October 23, 2021-July 9, 2022

Otobong Nkanga addresses the complex and shifting relationship between humans, land, and corresponding structures of repair. She traces the vestiges of trade in raw materials and how goods and people circulate the world in different ways and on different premises. By weaving together various mediums such as installation, tapestry, and storytelling, Nkanga’s work spans the temporality and subterranean effects of regimes acting on living beings. Especially in a time of climate urgencies and crises, such an exhibition is of great importance.
