As exhibition curator, the KM– director Sandro Droschl will lead visitors through “SCHÖN VERMÄHLT” by Kamilla Bischof, an artist originally from Graz. On this joint tour, interested visitors will receive first-hand information about the exhibition’s beginnings and the artist’s creative process. Bischof creates large-size paintings featuring everyday objects as well as fantastic creatures. Moreover, her pictorial worlds are accompanied by prose texts in her artist book, which is released on the occasion of the current exhibition. Through a look behind the Künstlerhaus scenes, visitors will also gain worthwhile knowledge about the curatorial practice and self-conception of this art venue.
