Exhibition Opening: The Keyhole of Mr. Wittgenstein

The Keyhole of Mr. Wittgenstein

Opening -  December 13, Thursaday, 18:30, Haus Wittgenstein, Parkgasse 18, 1030, Vienna

Between December 2012 and January 2013 Haus Wittgenstein in Vienna presents a group exhibition of contemporary Bulgarian artists, curated by Boris Kostadinov.

Artists: Vasilena Gankovska, Daniela Kostova, Michail Michailov, Maximilian Pramatarov, Kamen Stoyanov and Borjana Ventzislavova

All the projects are site-specific and specially created for the exhibition, The Keyhole of Mr. Wittgenstein. They are concerned, on the one hand, with the historical significance of Wittgenstein's philosophy; on the other they analyze the actual building designed by him, which is considered the first modernist private house in Vienna.

This place has an unusual history. House Wittgenstein was built in 1926-1928 as a residential palace of  Margarethe Stonborough. Ludwig Wittgenstein, who was her youngest brother, completed the project together with Paul Engelmann, a student and collaborator of Adolf Loos.

After World War II there were plans for the demolition of the house. A number of initiatives of the Austrian Society for Architecture, supported by protests from around the world, prevented the destruction of the building. House Wittgenstein was declared a National Architectural Monument. Nowadays it is home to the Bulgarian Cultural Institute.

The Keyhole of Mr. Wittgenstein presents video, painting, photography, objects and a performance.  Some of the exhibiting artists have lived in Vienna for a long time and are familiar with both Bulgarian and Austrian cultural contexts. Thus they are able to provide a wide overview of the past and the present of the house.
