The Showroom

Everything we see could also be otherwise (My sweet little lamb)

A contextualisation and rethinking of the Vienna-based Kontakt Art Collection curated by What, How & for Whom/WHW, Kathrin Rhomberg and Emily Pethick in collaboration with the Kontakt Art Collection.


Taking selected works, including seminal pieces by some of the most prominent artists from Central, Eastern and South-East Europe since the 1960s, including historical works by Mladen Stilinović, Július Koller, VALIE EXPORT, Geta Brătescu, Edward Krasiński and Sanja Iveković, the project stages an interplay between these and other historical, contemporary and newly produced works that interpret and critically examine the collection by artists such as Nika Dubrovsky, Tim Etchells, Marcus Geiger, Vlatka Horvat, David Maljković, Oscar Murillo, Manuel Pelmuş, Ashley Hans Scheirl and Stephen Willats.

The project forms the epilogue of a longer-term project which originally took place in Zagreb from November 2016 to May 2017, curated by What, How & for Whom/WHW in collaboration with Kathrin Rhomberg.
