my private world. Works from the VERBUND COLLECTION

From 1 October 2014 to 25 March 2015, the VERBUND COLLECTION, Vienna, presented the exhibition my private world in the Vertical Gallery, Vienna.

The exhibition my private world brings together three generations of artists who divide the phenomenon of privacy between intimacy and the public realm. The disclosure of personal life in the medium of photography started in the 1960s. It was an act of revolt against the bourgeois-idealised presentation of familial privacy of the post-war period. The artists presented in the exhibition document the proximity to an intimate atmosphere, which should not remain hidden from the observer. The artists Tahmineh Monzavi, Simryn Gill and Adam Rzepecki deserve special mention as they are being shown in the Vertical Gallery for the first time in Austria.
