    PRESS RELEASE

    For the exhibition Teach Nature, students of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna have explored the significance of nature for art production. Their works have been inspired by visits to Austrian national parks as well as interviews with scientists and caretakers in the parks.

    The starting point for the students’ work was the so-called “Red List,” i.e. the ever-increasing number of endangered animal and plant species in Austria. Simone Bader, Mona Hahn, Roland Kollnitz, Nora Schultz and Heimo Zobernig, teachers in the departments of Textual Sculpture, Sculpture & Installation and Art in Public Space at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, were on hand to support the students during this time. In regular meetings the connections between the impressions gathered in and with nature and their significance for art production were discussed and linked to the students’ individual approaches and artistic working methods.

    The resulting artworks include sculptures, paintings, prints, videos and performances, and are presented as interventions in the exhibition space of KUNST HAUS WIEN Garage, in the outdoor areas and the café.
