2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the autonomous exhibition space of basement. The concept “KO_OP 10 Jahre basement” presents a kind of retrospective reflection on the work of these years. Cooperative projects form a key focus, especially in 2014: exhibitions are being organized as a kind of overview in cooperation with Bulgarian, Munich and Berlin partners, while artists act as curators.
The exhibition “SALON 69 und Gäste” not only takes stock of the multifaceted connections and partnerships, but also celebrates the tenth anniversary of the autonomous exhibition space. An impressive show gives evidence of how many Austrian artists have already exhibited their works in the basement program.
The works are hung in the Petersburg salon style, an unusual installation strategy for the basement. Works by more than 70 artists serve to show to observers the variety and kind of approach being made towards the exhibition space.
Curator: Claudia-Maria Luenig (Austria/Germany)
