Linda Bilda – Amor vincit omnia




Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz

Invitation to the opening Tue 10.11.20 19.00

Due to current measurements the exhibition is postponed. We will keep you informed of the new dates.

In the summer of 2019, Linda Bilda passed away much too young and entirely unexpectedly. The Lentos puts on the first retrospective for the Viennese artist. This show, however, is not going to be a laid-back overview: Bilda’s poetical polit- pop in its many different incarnations has left nothing untried to disturb the world’s slumber. Linda Bilda (1963–2019) intervened early on in her career in public space with her fearless activities. She founded several journals, pro- duced comics and provocative paintings, organised reading and discussion circles, invented new open air imaging techniques and held international patents for a major invention, which she called light-glass. In her work, she strives for an “emancipatory pictorial policy”.

With an introduction by Hemma Schmutz Director Lentos and by Christoph Schäfer Curator

Accompanied by various fringe events, this exhibition at the Lentos focuses on the artist’s sense of urgency and her drive for change, which is apparent in everything she did.
