From December 14, 2016, to April 23, 2017, the 21er Haus will present central works by the Austrian artist Franz West (1947–2012) in an exhibition entitled Franz West – ARTISTCLUB. The works on view were made by 36 different artists in collaboration with Franz West. The so-called ARTISTCLUB began as a participatory project started by West in 1999. Even though it did not achieve its desired form while the artist was alive, here it can be experienced as a curatorial idea. Viewer participation and the collaboration with other artists play a central role in West’s artistic practice. He continually challenged the relationship between the artist, the artistic work, and the recipient in a radical way. The exhibition aims to reflect West’s concepts of art as a participatory act, the inclusion of various artistic positions via the process of collaboration, and the associated idea of authorship.
