> DESCRIPTION

Andreas Urteil (1933-1963) is considered one of the most prominent sculptors of the 1950s and 1960s. The 21er Haus exhibition marks the first time in 25 years that a Viennese museum puts a spotlight on the artist’s work, who was both a student of and assistant to Fritz Wotruba. The show includes more than 30 sculptures and drawings.
Finding a new way to transport dynamics and motion in space is central to Urteil’s work. In his search he draws on the formal achievements of early avant-garde movements such as Italian Futurism. The artist’s early work is surprisingly mature especially considering the fact that it stopped due to his untimely death.
