Supporting Institutions

On the basis of a decision passed by the City Council on 23 April 2015, the City of Linz acquired the premature legacy of the Linz-born artist, whose career began as a pioneer of feminist-oriented performance and media art and who today is considered one of the most important international artists. The Archive is part of the holdings of the LENTOS Kunstmuseum, which operates the internationally oriented VALIE EXPORT Center Linz_ Research Center for Media and Performance Art together with its co-operation partner, the University of Art and Design Linz, which is responsible for personnel and research.
