Andy Warhol at Kunst in Seefeld (Art in Seefeld)
The art initiative “KiS” – Kunst in Seefeld (Art in Seefeld) is still relatively new, but it has already made a name for itself. The third KiS exhibition in the old fire station is Andy Warhol’s collage cycle, “Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century“. These collages of exceptional Jewish intellectuals, namely Sarah Bernhardt, Louis Brandeis, Martin Buber, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, George Gershwin, Franz Kafka, Golda Meir, the Marx Brothers and Gertrude Stein, followed Warhol‘s portraits of famous celebrities such as Mick Jagger and Marilyn Monroe.
It was at the suggestion of a gallery owner, Ronald Feldman, that Warhol created the portraits in 1980. The pieces were based on photographs to which Warhol added his typical drawings and collage-like colour accents. The result is one collection of 10 individual artworks. The collection can be admired in the old fire station in Seefeld, the home of “KiS“.
Art in Seefeld - Kunst in Seefeld / KiS - started in June 2021 with a display by the US artist Philip Taaffe, which was followed by the underwater world inspired paintings of Miquel Barceló from Spain. The successful cooperation between Seefeld-based Rafael Jablonka, an ex-gallery owner and art collector, and the Seefeld municipality is now picking up the pace with the Warhol display. This exhibition is sure to enrich Seefeld's art world with its exciting insight into contemporary art.
