Postcards of the Wiener Werkstätte

Founded in 1903, the Wiener Werkstätte aimed to artistically infuse all areas of life. Soon it also included the production of postcards in its program, and numerous renowned artists contributed their designs and templates to this enterprise. Their exclusive design and relatively small print run also appealed to collectors of postcards and created a veritable passion for collecting, which continues unabated to this day.

Today, more than 400 Wiener Werkstätte postcards are in the Graphic Arts Collection of the Province of Upper Austria.

Michaela Moscouw

The Viennese artist Michaela Moscouw (*1961) has been incessantly searching for traces of her self for over three decades.

Uncompromisingly, excessively and memorably, she circles her themes of self-staging, self-understanding, self-exposure and also self-extinction. Until the early 1980s, she painted abstract works, all of which she destroyed and filmed. With this she changed the medium - since then she works with photographic means. It is "the aestheticized body experience" that the artist is concerned with.
