Kiki Kogelnik: This Is Your Life - An archival Account

The work of Kiki Kogelnik, one of the most important and renown Austrian born artists, is receiving  growing international recognition and appreciation.


In the year of the 25th anniversary of her death, the Werner Berg Museum presents the first exhibition that tells the story of her life through recently discovered archive material such as photographs, letters, posters, films, personal objects as well as portraits and self-portraits.


Born in 1935, Kiki Kogelnik spent the majority of her childhood and adolescence in the southern Carinthian town of Bleiburg. After her studies in Vienna at the Academy of Applied Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in the 1950s and extensive stays in France, Scandinavia and Switzerland, the artist moved to New York in 1962, where the Pop Art movement was just emerging, and made the city her new home. Bleiburg, however, remained a special place for her; a place that she would consistently return to until her death in 1997.
