Exhibition with Sophie Neumann, Jana Straßer, Stefanie F. Weber in the context of the event series Wer A… sagt of the University library of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

Sophie Neumanns, Jana Straßers and Stefanie F. Webers art works deal with the shift of the meaning of what is private and what is public, especially in the context of Lockdowns. The paintings developed from movements in isolation which caused limited spheres of the physical on the one hand, on the other hand an undetermined sphere of the virtual.

Together, Sophie Neumann, Jana Straßer and Stefanie Weber show their recent works at the Academy library. For like no place other, the artists view the library as an example as to how wishes and desires, yearnings and apprehensions come together at a single space – with the hope to find and to touch again what has been lost and what has been looked for since.

Sophie Neumann, Jana Straßer and Stefanie F. Weber are students at the Institute of Education in the Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
