Julius Koller

Einladung: Julius Koller. 2007

24.01.2007 - 24.02.2007

Galerie Martin Janda, Raum aktueller Kunst, Wien / Österreich

“Für mich sind meine Wohnung und die gesamte Umwelt das Atelier. Die Transformation der gewöhnlichen Lebenssituationen in ‚Kulturelle Situationen’ interessiert mich. Diese werden von mir als Individuum in einer nicht-ateliermäßigen Arbeitsweise durch subjektive Interventionen in objektive Realität verwandelt.“ (Július Koller)



Die Galerie Martin Janda zeigt von 23. Jänner bis 24. Februar 2007 Fotografien, Installationen und Malereien von Július Koller.



“A singular figure, Koller developed highly sophisticated (and often uncannily funny) conceptual tools to maintain independence in Communist Czechoslovakia, where cultural production was divided into institutional and so-called free art, i....e., the public sphere of official Socialist Realism and the private spaces of, as Koller once named it, a ‘subjective objectivity system’. Throughout postwar Slovakian history, marked until 1989 by political and cultural outlines drawn in Moscow and then (after a time of euphoria) by the sobering reality checks of the ‘free market’, he continued to explore this ‘system’. Always interested in gestures of universalism from a position of both voluntary and forced marginality, Koller has now become recognized internationally as the exceptional outsider he is.” (Tom Holert, Artforum)
