At the MMKK, the exhibition’s curators explore the relationship between architecture and art. The works of architect Günther Domenig are brought into a dialogue with contemporary artistic positions and selected pieces from the museum’s collection. Works by renowned photographers highlight the uniqueness of Günther Domenig’s work.

With works by Raimund Abraham, Christian Brandstätter, Herbert Boeckl, Peter Cook, Franco Fonatti, Julia Gaisbacher, Peter Kaschnig, Cornelius Kolig, Maria Lassnig, Sonia Leimer, Gerhard Maurer, Thom Mayne, Ferdinand Neumüller, Stefan Oláh, Paul Ott, Gustav Peichl, Walter Pichler, Klaus Pinter, Anna Rubin, Peter Sandbichler, SHE SAID, Hans Schabus,Toni Schmale, David Schreyer, Margherita Spiluttini, Wolfgang Thaler, Lebbeus Woods, Gerald Zugmann.

The exhibition at AHK brings Domenig’s architectural work into dialogue with subsequent generations of architects. The Viennese Kollektiv 4 transforms AHK into an overall spatial media installation and opens up new perspectives through Günther Domenig’s slide archive in the Az W. This dialogue will be supported by a series of lectures and talks with architects and experts.

With works by Kollektiv 4 (Christian Freude, Christina Jauernik, Johann Lurf, Fabian Puttinger), Peter Kaschnig, the next ENTERprise Architects, Kathrin Aste (./​studio3).

As Günther Domenig’s key autobiographical work, the DOMENIG STEINHAUS itself becomes an exhibit and its physicality is investigated through the medium of performance. Over three weekends, the Tanzquartier Wien (TQW) will occupy the Steinhaus with invited guests. Both architecture and sculpture at once, its expressive gesture becomes a resonance space for other art forms, in keeping with the programme of the STEINHAUS Günther Domenig Private Foundation.

With Julius Deutschbauer, durch:formen (Katrin Ackerl Konstantin, Niki Meixner, Erik-Jan Rippmann), Alexander Gottfarb, Barbara Kaiser, Andrea Maurer, Karin Pauer and Aldo Giannotti, Oleg Soulimenko and Doris Uhlich.

Created for the Carinthian Regional Exhibition in 1995, this building is both a location and an exhibit, and is today considered a central work in Günther Domenig’s architectural oeuvre. Over several years the vacancy of the building has led to a unique setting of sculptural-architectural overlays created by nature. Temporary artistic interventions and works by artists and students from selected art and architecture universities will once again open up the building to the public.

Essay by Anna Baar and photos by
Gerhard Maurer.
The publication In Resonanz takes an unusual approach to exploring Günther Domenig’s architectural oeuvre. The architect and his work are viewed from the outside: outside the dominant modes of perception; outside his lifetime; outside the norms of an architecture book – and for this very reason, it creates other ways of perceiving.

In Reflexion is the scientific and artistic supplement to the publication In Resonanz. Multiple authors explore the work and impact of architect Günther Domenig from a contemporary perspective. This (architectural) theoretical, artistic and feminist examination provides further and fresh thinking to expand on what is already known, while also rediscovering forgotten or overlooked material.
