Issue 12
Dec 2013 - Feb 2014

Issue 12 of frieze d/e looks to Vienna. Word Gerhard Rühm, Theo Altenberg, Ann Cotten & Kerstin Cmelka revisit the experiments in poetry and art of the ‘Wiener Gruppe,’ a collective founded in postwar Vienna in reaction to the suppressed aesthetic movements of the time.

Dominikus Müller and Helen Chang explore the unique role that interior design has played in the artistic and architectural landscapes of the city.

Jörg Heiser pays a visit to the Vienna studio of the long-overlooked artist Martha Jungwirth and reflects on five decades of her painting.

Also featured: Jonathan Griffin talks to Lucie Stahl about scanners, fluids and non-sequiturs; Elvia Wilk considers the exhibition as interface in the work of Simon Denny; and Matthias Dusini examines Josef Dabernig’s tireless quest for autonomy.
