Galerie im Griechenbeisl
Christa Hauer und Johann Fruhmann:
Pioniere der zeitgenössischen Kunstszene in Wien

The book offers an insight into the art and art criticism of the sixties in Austria. From 1960 to 1971, the gallery in the „Griechenbeisl“ enabled numerous now renowned artists to have their first public presentation. In this legendary information gallery, in addition to multiples, room installations, environments and conceptual efforts, abstractions of a lyrical, gestural and figurative nature, realistic tendencies, the “realities” and modern classics were represented. In addition, the gallery of the artists Christa Hauer and Johann Fruhmann was a forum for discussion, communication and discourse for artists. At that time there were hardly any opportunities in Vienna, especially for young artists.
