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 fourth artist:

Christian Bazant-Hegemark


Symphony, 2013, 180 x 200 cm, Oil on canvas

Christian Bazant-Hegemark (*1978) is a visual storyteller. He paints open-minded stories whose interpretations grow with their viewers. Using visual fragments, his works offer cues to create emotions and narrative strands.
His exhibition at the Complexity Science Hub shows works from 2011-2018, offering an emotive, visual framing for Complexity Science.



About the artist

Bazant-Hegemark studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna — in the classes of Daniel Richter, Harun Farocki and Gunter Damisch (2006-2011). To further dive into the complexities of storytelling in contemporary painting, he spent four additional years there — researching his Doctoral Thesis (PhD) about “Painting and digital technologies” (Elisabeth von Samsonow, Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein, 2011-2015).
Christian Bazant-Hegemark lives and works in Vienna. He is represented by Galerie Voss, Düsseldorf.
