MICHAEL HOROWITZ: VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHS - from Kiki Kogelnik to Arnold Schwarzenegger
On the occasion of the exhibition Kiki Kogelnik: Now is the Time in the Bank Austria Kunstforum, the AnzenbergerGallery is showing vintage photographs from the work of Michael Horowitz, which show Kogelnik and other personalities.
More than 50 years ago, 18-year-old photographer Michael Horowitz visited rising pop art icon Kiki Kogelnik in New York. In America, the communicative young woman soon made contact with the New York art scene around Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and Roy Lichtenstein. At that time, the extravagant performer creates space art images and hangings sculptures from body outlines in vinyl - which she hangs on coat hooks. Works that are among her most important today.
In addition to Kiki Kogelnik's never-before-seen vintage photos from the years of his creation, Horowitz is presenting unique vintage human images in the AnzenbergerGallery, from Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom he photographed in the early 1970s, to Thomas Bernhard, Helmut Qualtinger and the young Senta Berger.
