For students, artists and all guests who are interested in experimental art forms, the event series WTF is Live Art? provides in-depth insights into approaches and working methods. Each evening an artist will be a guest and talk about his/her work. As a prelude to their new event series NIXTASY, Die Fabrikanten will bring the mobile part of the NO SHOW MUSEUM to the Hauptplatz in Linz on 2 October 2019.
The NO SHOW MUSEUM is the world’s first museum dedicated to 'nothing' and its various manifestations throughout the history of art. Its collection includes around 500 works and documents from 150 internationally renowned artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The museum has committed itself to the mission to spread nothing all over the globe. For this reason, it has been traveling from continent to continent since 2015. The museum has a mobile presentation space of 7m2 in a converted postbus and took part in the 56th art biennale in Venice, among other places, and has staged around 70 exhibitions in Europe, North and Central America.
The special exhibition entitled NOTHING MATTERS – ICONS OF THE VOID shows 20 iconic works of modern art from the beginning of the 20th century up today, dedicated to different aspects, forms and variations of nothing. The exhibition is a collaboration with Slovak artist Stano Masar, who has developed a pictogram for each of these masterpieces.
Subsequent to this Andreas Heusser, curator of the No Show Museums will give an introduction to the fascinating art of nothing.
