About

What is the state of art in today's visual language? Signs, icons and ideograms determine our daily communication; pictographic guidance systems dominate public space. Much of what we understand as visual language originates in Otto Neurath's Vienna Method of Pictorial Statistics, later known as ISOTYPE (International System of Typographic Picture Education). This multi-media exhibition, curated by Maria Christine Holter and Christopher Burke, features over 30 contributions from renowned contemporary Austria based artists, whose work is either directly or indirectly inspired by Neurath. The exhibition presents various artistic strategies for using pictograms and pictorial statistics to visualise political, social, global or purely individual agendas. Original works by social economist and Vienna Circle philosopher Neurath (1882 Vienna — 1945 Oxford) will feature alongside contemporary pieces.
