Panel Discussion/Moderation, Landesgalerie Niederösterreich, Krems
Panel Discussion with Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer, Stefania Pitscheider-Soraperra and Renate Bertlmann.
Moderation: Katharina Brandl
On the occasion of Renate Bertlmann's solo exhibitions at the Biennale Arte Venice and at the Landesgalerie Niederösterreich with the title RENATE BERTLMANN I HERE RUHT MY TERRITALITY from May 2019, the artist's work was appreciated, discussed and celebrated.
With two keynotes followed by a panel discussion moderated by Katharina Brandl, artistic director of Kunstraum Niederösterreich since 2019, Renate Bertlmann's work was viewed in a contemporary context. Art historian, journalist and curator Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer, who had already followed Bertlmann's performances and early exhibitions in the 1970s, spoke on the subject of art taboo and refusal of reception - how to deal with Renate Bertlmann's work concept. Stefania Pitscheider-Soraperra, art and architecture historian and director of the only Austrian women's museum in Hittisau, focused on art, culture and society - interaction and processes of change.
