Minda Andrén
Minda Andrén, born 1990 in Gothenburg, lives and works in Vienna and is currently working on her diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts.

By referring to stereotypical images, she isolates and abstracts representations of everyday objects and influences and circles in her works around contradictory yet interdependent connecting elements such as destruction and reconstruction, surface and materiality, always in relation to the human body. Using the media of painting, video and installation, she finds an act of balance between abstraction and narration.

Andrén is also part of the Stafett collective. Their ongoing work plays with the idea of a continuous group exhibition by presenting individual works that involve an inevitable blurring of the authorship of their objects, images or ideas, as competing aspects of collaboration and autonomy collide.
Elisa Alberti
Elisa Alberti (*1992 in Kiel) lives and works in Vienna. She studied graphics and printmaking at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, where she graduated in 2019.
Her abstract paintings are characterized by details of urban and natural space, which tell of the artist's life almost like an unreadable diary. High-contrast, geometric forms and colors that overlap and merge with each other convey deceleration and contemplation.
Günter Brus
Günter Brus was born on 27 September 1938 in Arding in Styria. Alongside Herrmann Nitsch, Otto Muehl and Rudolf Schwarzkogler, he was one of the most important representatives of "Wiener Aktionismus " and had a decisive influence on international performance art.

From 1954 to 1957 Günter Brus completed his studies at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Graz in the commercial art class. In 1958 he began his studies at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, which, however, remained unfinished. During his time in Vienna, Brus was influenced by Austrian Early Expressionism, in particular by Egon Schiele. In 1964 his first "Action", which transferred painting to body and space, took place with the title "Ana". Further "Actions" such as the "Wiener Spaziergang" followed in 1965. In 1968 the action "Art and Revolution" (also known as "Uni Ferkelei") by Günter Brus, Otto Muehl, Peter Weibel and Oswald Wiener at the University of Vienna leads to a sentence of six months imprisonment. As a result, Günter Brus and his family flee to Berlin. In 1970 he carries out his last action "Zerreißprobe" in Munich. From there on he finds a new way of artistic expression - the "Bild-Dichtungen", which is a graphic interplay of image and text. The content remains critical but causes less sensation. In 1979 the Brus family returns to Styria. In addition to exhibitions in Eindhoven, Paris, Barcelona and Berlin, the artist is also honoured again in Austria: in 1986 the Museum Moderner Kunst Vienna exhibits his works under the title "Der Überblick". He took part in documenta 5 and documenta 7 in Kassel and in 1980 exhibited at the Venice Biennale. In 1997 he was awarded the Austrian State Prize for his artistic achievements. In 2004 he was awarded the Oskar Kokoschka Prize, and in 2008 he finally opened his own museum and research centre in Graz, the "BRUSEUM". An excerpt from his quote "My body is the intention, my body is the event, my body is the result," will even be the exhibition title at MUMOK, Vienna 2015. In 2018 Belvedere 21 showed a retrospective and he received the Grand Decoration of Honour of the Province of Styria as well as Decorations for Science, Research and Art.
Ross Bleckner
Ross Bleckner was born in New York on May 12, 1949. From 1971 to 1973 he studied with Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close at New York University and at the California Institute of the Arts with a Master's degree. Bleckner had his first solo exhibition in 1975. In 1995 the Guggenheim Museum in New York dedicated a mid-career retrospective to his work. Works by the internationally renowned artist can be found in institutional and private collections all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Collezione Maramotti (Italy), the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Spain), and the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York).

Ross Bleckner has been investigating the interface between psychology, biology and personal identity through painting for forty years. The results range from geometric abstraction to space suggested by fog-shaped fields or stripes, from painterly constellation systems and architecture to explicitly symbolic works in which urns, chandeliers, birds, flowers, blood or brain cells were used. Its main subjects often float in space and are surrounded by diffuse backgrounds. The challenges he faces as an artist, as well as society in general, are investigated and addressed. On the other hand, he presents the human longing for beauty, expressed, for example, in flower motifs. Series of works such as Dome and Architecture of the Sky, which appear for the first time in his works of the 1990s, are continued and further developed. These compositions correlate with the unrecognisable, in search of understanding and cognition. The artist Ross Bleckner articulates his ideas, thoughts and artistic visions through his individual painting technique and painting itself. The process is elementary and multi-layered. The materials are a composition of oil in combination with zinc, wax or powdered metal particles. The aim is to influence the thought process and the perception of the viewer and his reception.

Julia Haugeneder
Julia Haugeneder (*1987 in Vienna) lives and works in Vienna. She studied graphics and printmaking techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and at Central Saint Martins, London.
The artist works in the fields of sculpture and object art as well as printmaking. The artist develops her objects in the process of working, i.e. in a constant response relationship with the material and the external conditions. She explores the possibilities of the material, she excites them and in doing so explores in terms of content what we call "object".
She pours a colored mass (bookbinding glue and pigment) onto the floor, which, when dried as a thin rubber-like skin, forms the material. Depending on the specifics, the first folds are decisive, which then lead to the next ones.
Lone Haugaard Madsen
Lone Haugaard Madsen, born 1974 in Silkeborg, Denmark, works and lives between Copenhagen and Vienna. In her work, Haugaard Madsen negotiates fundamental questions concerning the conditions of producing and exhibiting art.

Elke Silvia Krystufek
Elke Silvia Krystufek is a visual artist, photographer, installation artist and author based in Vienna. Already at the age of 28, she represented Austria at the São Paolo Biennale and has been an integral part of Contemporary Art ever since. In addition to numerous solo exhibitions, among others at the Essl Museum or the MAK Museum in Vienna, Krystufek's works are also internationally presented in group exhibitions.

Elke Silvia Krystufek was born in 1970. Immediately after graduating from high school, Krystufek devoted herself to studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. From 1988 to 1993 she was one of Arnulf Rainer’s students. Krystufek staged her own life right from the beginning of her artistic career. In public performances she often uses her body as canvas for her art, which generates great public attention, however leads to controversy. In "Action", for example, she scars herself in order to paint her naked body with her own blood. Before she was given a professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 2005, Elke Silvia Krystufek taught classes as guest lecturer at several European art colleges. In 2009 she founded her own archive and exhibited in the Austrian Pavilion of the 53rd Biennale di Venezia. From 2011, the artist will use the artist's name Elke Silvia Krystufek, which is also conceived as her own work of art. A differentiation in perception between the private individual and the art figure is difficult to grasp due to the stringent staging. Elke Silvia Krystufek's versatility can be clearly seen in her artistic activities. Her art includes paintings and installations, as well as photographies. She also works as an author writing literary texts, books and plays, inspired by different artist, writers and designers. Irritation, breaking of taboos and confrontation, are keywords for her artistic confrontation with not only cultural, but also controversial, political issues. The viewer cannot escape a reaction - be it shame, aggression, enthusiasm or admiration.
Daniel Knorr
Born 1968 in Bucharest, Romania, lives and works in Berlin, Germany
He studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste (Academy of Fine Arts) Munich from 1989 to 1995, after which he was a student at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in the USA.
Using a wide variety of genres, Daniel Knorr explores urban space and the relationship between public and private in his interactive artistic projects. He applies a conceptual approach in his investigation of historical and socio-political (economic as well as bio-political) phenomena, which he appropriates, transfers, and thematizes in the context of art.
Irina Lotarevich
Irina Lotarevich (* 1991, in Rybinsk, Russian, lives and works in New York City and Vienna) studied at Cornell University, Hunter College, and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Her work will be included in the upcoming MAK Biennial in Vienna in 2021.
Angelika Loderer
Emerging from the histories of modernism, Angelika Loderer’s (* 1984, lives and works in Vienna) work is also framed by the conditions of the present. On the one hand, she activates the performative power of the informe —agitating the modernist delineation between form and content. On the other hand, she is situated in a contemporary moment characterized by modes of living in which contingency becomes the norm. In this double context, Loderer has developed a body of work that incorporates contingency as a formative condition. Her work makes use of materials, processes, and display mechanisms that constantly perform and expose the object’s internal balancing act in relation to an equally contingent spectator.

Loderer studied at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, at Wimbledon College of Art, London as well as at Hendrix College, Arkansas, USA.

Recent solo exhibitions include: 2020 ‘Night Pieces’ at Sophie Tappeiner; 2019 ‘Pretend to be Fine’, Kunstfenster Gnas; 2018 ‘Poems to Gadgets’ at Grazer Kunstverein; 2017 ‘Quiet Fonts’ at Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna; ‘Angelika Loderer’ at Secession, Vienna; 2016 ‘Animate’ at Salzburger Kunstverein; 2015 ‘Coming in Pieces’ at Dortmunder Kunstverein.

Selected group shows include:2019 ‘all natural. 100% Sammlung’ at Museum der Moderne Salzburg /Mönchsberg/, ‘On the New. Young Scenes in Vienna’ at Belvedere 21 – Museum of Contemporary Art, Vienna; 2018 ‘Dead End Galaxies’ at Exile Gallery, Berlin; 2017 ‘To figure it out’ at Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna, ‘Platonic Dust‘ at El Quinto Piso, Mexico City; 2016 ‘Collaborative Network’ at Forum Stadtpark, Graz.

Her work is included in the permanent collections of Belvedere 21, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Landesgalerie Linz, Lentos, Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Universalmuseum Joanneum and EVN.
Otto Muehl
From 1948 to 1952, Muehl studied at the University of Vienna to become a teacher of German and history before starting his studies of art education at the Academy of Fine Arts from 1953 onwards. After his first solo exhibition in 1960, however, he turned away from painting and created works of art in which he slid canvases, incorporated objects and produced artworks of scrap. Together with other artists, Muehl contributed significantly to the beginning of "Viennese Actionism" through his manifesto "Die Blutorgel" in 1962. Together with Hermann Nitsch and Adolf Frohner, he had himself mured in his studio for three days. Being aversed to bourgeois society, artists like Muehl, Nitsch and Günter Brus wanted to break the traditional concept of art with disturbing and radical body actions. In 1966 Muehl created a new type of action with Brus, which was centered around the body. Muehl participated in a variety of performances, including the 1968 "Art and Revolution" campaign and the slaughter of a pig and its blood-filled art with Nitsch in 1969. To delineate his art from the "Happening Art" Muehl founded the commune "Aktionsanalytische Organization" (AAO), which was inspired by Wilhelm Reich, and later the Friedrichshof Commune in 1974, which ran its own school, various workshops and agriculture. At its peak in 1983, the commune comprises 600 members. Although the commune is founded on principles such as sexual freedom, Community ownership, the abolition of the small family and the further development of art performances, the project fails because of authoritarian leadership. Muehl creates a variety of paintings and drawings, which, however, are not exhibited outside the commune. After being convicted in 1991 based on different moral codes, he is sentenced to seven years' imprisonment. During his imprisonment he created around 300 pictures. After his release he moved to Portugal, where he lived until his death in 2013 in an "Art & Life Family" commune.

Sydney Shen
Sydney Shen (*born in 1989 in Woodbridge) lives and works in​ ​New​ ​York.
Shen uses sculptures and installations to create an atmosphere of wretched apprehension, examining the limitation of mentality through the extremity of the physical body. Exploring through various sources from historical and contemporary art history, including but not limited to medieval excruciation, supernatural horror fiction, and Internet subcultures, Shen frankensteins organic and fabricated materials such as Chinese and Western medical apparatus and instruments, graphic designed ornaments, and biological specimens. With the enticing but horrifying duality in her work, Shen manages to drag the audiences into the bizarre yet motley world she creates, directs and performs in.
Recent solo exhibitions include 'Onion Master' at New Museum, New York;'Every Good Boy Does Fine' at Sophie Tappeiner, Vienna; and 'Four Thieves Vinegar' at Springsteen, Baltimore.

Upcoming exhibitions include a solo exhibition with Gallery Vacancy in Shanghai.

Franz Vana
Franz Vana. Born 1951 he is affiliated with the gallery since 1983. His original combination of language, narration and formal discourse of painting makes him one of the most interesting mavericks among Austrian artists of his generation.
Marianne Vlaschits
Marianne Vlaschits (*1983 in Vienna) lives and works in Vienna. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and at the Slade School of Art in London.
The artist works with painting and installations, which function as a spatial extension of her painting. In her work the artist deals with space as a projection surface for visions of the future and as a place of longing for humanity. Currently Vlaschits works with classical oil painting on self-built sloped canvases, which remind of thought bubbles, eggs or meteorites. The artist combines surrealist aesthetics with themes from progressive science fiction and contemporary painting.
Franz West
Franz West was one of the most important Austrian sculptors of the post-war generation. His best-known works worldwide are the unique "Passstücke", which he has been producing since the 1970s.

Even before his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Bruno Gironcoli from 1977-1982, Franz West was artistically active. Both drawings and sculptures, including the first "Passstücke", were created in the early 70s. These are abstract organic forms made of plaster or papier-mâché, partly in combination with metal, which can be used by the viewer in different ways. Later, everyday objects, especially different kinds of chairs, also found their way into his oeuvre. His works both make us smile and reflect. The boundaries of art and authorship are questioned or disappear completely, while the viewer plays a decisive role. It is only through the psychological or physical dialogue between object and subject that the work of art becomes fully accessible. Collaboration with artist colleagues is also an important thought in the work of Franz West. The idea of the so-called "ARTISTCLUB" was implemented at Belvedere 21 in 2017. Franz West represents Austria at the 1993 Venice Biennale and exhibits at Documenta IX and X in Kassel. His work is also popular beyond the borders of Europe. 1989 his first exhibition took place in the USA. He also took part in the São Paulo Art Biennial (1998) and the Biennale of Sydney (2000).

Jala Wahid
Jala Wahid (*1988, lives and works in London) works across sculpture, video, installation and writing. She looks to the emotive and symbolic potential of materials, music and song in exploring the interregional and internal politics that have shaped Kurdistan and the implications this has from a diasporic perspective. She is interested in the complexities of nationalism within a stateless people, history and iconography, methods of archiving and existence, and Kurdish culture and politics as forms of self-preservation and defiance.

Jala Wahid received her BA from Goldsmiths College, London in 2014 and completed her PgDip in Fine Art at the Royal Academy of Arts in 2019.
