The nitsch museum in Mistelbach is dedicating 2018 to the 80th birthday of Hermann Nitsch who is being honoured with a special exhibition: “HERMANN NITSCH – Life and Work” sheds light upon the extraordinary course of the artist’s life on not only the creative but also, for the first time, the personal level. Conceived as a biographical tour and complemented by a frieze of works arranged by Hermann Nitsch himself, the exhibition traces an artistic career which is being comprehensively presented for the first time in the form of key works and original documents.
The exhibition “Hermann Nitsch – LIFE AND WORK” focusses on Nitsch’s artistic work of the past 65 years as well as on personal events that have had a special impact upon his development. The life and the work of the universal artist Hermann Nitsch are constantly, seamlessly merging. The exhibition conveys this interdependency, enabling the visitor to develop a profound understanding for Nitsch’s ideas and artistic approaches. The 130-metre-long biographical tour with the important works and original documents outlines the most significant phases in the artist’s life.
