Hermann Nitsch is one of the initiators of the so called "Wiener Aktionismus", a group of Austrian artists, ignored by the art establishment, in total opposition to the social, political and aesthetic mores, and still regarded as a strange, unique phenomenon in Austria. Since 1957 Hermann Nitsch has consistenly developed his concept of the "Theater of Orgies and Mysteries" (O-M Theatre).

Jannis Kounellis

Jannis Kounellis
Jannnis Kounellis, born in Piraeus, Greece, living in Rome since 1958, is a key figure in the "arte povera" movement - the first contemporary Italian art movement on an international level, which began in Italy in the 1960s. Using materials in his installations that were considered unusual - wool, coal, live animals, plants - Kounellis was the first to attempt to eliminate the boundary that separates life from art, creation from production.


Paul Flora
To many observers of the Austrian and German art scene, Paul Flora appears to have weathered many storms on his stony path to becoming well known for his characteristic black ink line drawings. Living in Tirol, where it is almost impossible for an artist to earn a living solely by selling his artwork, he is one of the few who have achieved sustained success.

Carol Rama
Olga Carolina Rama, born 1918, always lived alone in the same place, in Turin, Italy. The material she likes most: very soft sheet or very hard canvas, and tires. Tires remind her of her father, the factory, they remind her of power.


Ben Ormenese
Kinetic artist Benito Ormenese, born 1930 in Prata di Pordenone, Italy, left the faculty of architecture in the 1960ies and moved to Milano to become an artist. Many of Ormenese's artworks are recognizable by the geometrical and three-dimensional aspects he incorporates into them.
