Art at the Hub

Sometimes it occurs to us that life could be more than rocket science. What about art for instance?

The Hub as a gallery

When we first saw the big, white walls of Palais Strozzi we knew: This place cries for art.

Our “Art at the Hub” program allows artists with a special interest in science to present their work. Furthermore, it allows these works of art to enter into a dialogue with the historic walls.

These Hub exhibitions will change several times a year and will be presented to the public at a vernissage.

The person in charge is Laura Stöger.

Our first artist: Olaf Osten

Olafs large-sized paintings have been decorating our rooms since 2016.

About the artist

Olaf Osten


Olaf Osten is a Vienna-based artist and graphic designer. He was born in Lübeck and studied Graphic Design in Hildesheim and Dublin.


“I am interested in the balance between constancy and change, which we presumably all are searching for. These sketches are themselves movement, and at the same time an expression of my movement – created through a sort of yearning. I constantly have to articulate my picture of the world so as not to stiffen up inwardly and outwardly. To maintain the widest range of possibilities within my field of view”, Olaf Osten.


His works are on display in the collections of the International Peace Institute, Austrian Foreign Ministry and the Wien Museum.
