Our ninth artist-duo:
Birgit und Peter Kainz
About the exhibition
Our next exhibition will feature the works of the duo Birgit und Peter Kainz. Their artistic work always centers around the word HUMANE. They are socially critical digital photographers and pictorial scientists whose works stand for freedom and equality and invite the audience to free thinking.
Peter was one of the first digital photographers in Austria, taught at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and Birgit is a graphic designer and coordinator of their projects.
They have received numerous prices such as the “Maecenas Prize” and the “Niederösterreichischer Kulturpreis” and have realized many projects e.g. together with “Nachbar in Not”, “Kunst am Bau” and “basis wien”.
Their exhibition at the CSH Vienna was planned to start in May. Due to the coronavirus outbreak we had to postpone the vernissage to—hopefully—fall.
The Hub will feature artworks from the last ten years but also give visitors the opportunity get in touch with the artists and the CSH in an interactive way. Two ribbons will be there to be hung with statements, pictures and other artefacts throughout the duration of the exhibition by the public.
