Current Videos

Our play list contains videos of the most diverse kind. We record impressions of exhibition openings and a wide range of different events. To keep you up-to-date, our cameras track the “making-of” of exhibitions and drop in on an assortment of educational activities. This enables you to obtain a close-up virtual view of what’s going on at the LENTOS.

Most of the videos are in German, the English ones are especially marked. Thank you for bearing with us.

The life and activities of the art dealer Wolfgang Gurlitt (1888–1965) are closely intertwined with the beginnings of the LENTOS Kunstmuseum: for the museum, the Gurlitt Collection is a legacy that is as brilliant as it is problematic. "It's not just about exhibiting art, it's a much more complex topic," said curator and collection manager Elisabeth Nowak-Thaller about the exhibition.

"The moment you start to work, everything you thought before, how the work might look, is obsolete," says artist Otto Zitko about his approach to site-specific murals. In the video the artist and LENTOS director Hemma Schmutz are talking about the exhibition. (German only)

"... it is a very dramatic situation that a society is beginning to discriminate them." describes curator Katrin Luchsinger the motivation of patients to express themselves artistically. This video for the exhibition "Extraordinaire! Unknown works from psychiatric institutions in Switzerland around 1900 - supplemented with works from Austria" in LENTOS makes it clear why art from psychiatric institutions is such an important topic for cultural history and art history.

LASSNIG – RAINER. The Early Work

The show at LENTOS is featuring around 120 works from the early years by Maria Lassnig and Arnulf Rainer. For the first time, the work of the two world-famous artists will be exhibited together. "In this exhibition, we can see very well where the two artists come from and how their style has developed," curator Brigitte Reutner explains in an interview.
