On March 5, 2020 the ACFNY, in partnership with Universalmuseum Joanneum (Graz), will open its new exhibition Freedom will have been an episode, curated by Roman Grabner, director of BRUSEUM at Neue Galerie Graz. Following in the footsteps of pioneering Austrian painter, performance artist, experimental filmmaker, and writer Günter Brus (*1938), four emerging artists and collectives from Austria have developed new site-specific installations that engage with what freedom means today in art and society. The exhibition will run through May 31, 2020.
