Future Bodies from a Recent Past—Sculpture, Technology, and the Body since the 1950s brings to life a hitherto little-noticed phenomenon in art, and more particularly in sculpture: the reciprocal interpenetration of body and technology. With more than 100 works and several large-scale installations by about 60 artists—primarily from Europe, the United States, and Japan—the exhibition focuses on the major technological changes since World War II and their influence on our ideas of the body.
The exhibition is curated by Patrizia Dander and Franziska Linhardt and accompanied by a substantial catalgoue published by Deutscher Kunstverlag available in English and German.
The Kiki Kogelnik Foundation is pleased to announce the second solo presentation of the work of Kiki Kogelnik at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York. The exhibition Kiki Kogelnik: Women shifts the focus to the 1970s and her ideas about how women were seen and treated in the world at that time.
Drawing on the images found within the pages of fashion magazines, in the 1970s she embarked on a series of paintings that showed their subjects as both empowered and absurd as they performed their assigned roles. Stripped of the context of a photoshoot, dressed in fiercely patterned dresses and bathing suits, augmented by the occasional prop, their dynamic poses contrast with their painted faces, and eyes that no longer appear to harbor any emotion. Echoing her interest in the idea of the cyborg from the previous decade, they are in her own words: “beautiful, rich, worldly, superficial, bored, neither happy nor unhappy, no deep thoughts, no sentiment, no feelings.”
The exhibition includes 10 paintings and 21 works on paper that date from 1962 to 1985 that explore: her fascination with Marilyn Monroe, the body as a sexual object, pregnancy, beauty, glamor, abuse, the face, and the mask.

The exhibition is curated by Anna Sauer, archivist of the Kiki Kogelnik Foundation.

Kiki Kogelnik is to be included in the main exhibition at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia titled The Milk of Dreams and curated by Cecilia Alemani, director and chief curator of High Line Art in New York. Her show's title is a reference to a series of drawings that were later turned into a children's book by Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington and will focus on three distinct areas of inquiry: "the representation of bodies and their metamorphoses; the relationship between individuals and technologies; the connection between bodies and the Earth."

Presented as part of the city of Toulouse's festival Le Printemps de septembre, this solo exhibition focuses on twenty-eight works on paper from the 1960s, 70s and 80s that address ideas of the social, medical and technological body. Through her work, Kiki Kogelnik observed that the bodies shaped by the consumer society lose their uniqueness, become empty envelopes, interchangeable, deleteable, are sent into space or fragmented by bombs as victims of the ambivalence of progress. Both serious and light, Kiki Kogelnik's works navigate a world that is both dystopian and utopian, where science is as oppressive and destructive as it is liberating and creative. The exhibition is curated by David Lemaire and Cécile Poblon.
Party for Öyvind aims to shed light on Öyvind Fahlström's diverse artistic output—film, painting, poetry, sculpture, music, performance and more—and includes artwork by a variety of his friends showing how they interacted with and inspired each other: Kiki Kogelnik, Roy Lichtenstein, Barbro Östlihn, Claes Oldenburg and Robert Rauschenberg, amongst others.

The group show Plastic Heart: Surface All the Way Through is an experimental exhibition examining plastic as art material, cultural object, geologic process, petrochemical product, and a synthetic substance fully entangled with the human body. A silver gelatin print depicting Kiki Kogelnik wrapped in a variety of her foam sculptures walking the streets of Manhattan in 1967 is shown alongside works by artists such as Naum Gabo, Tegan Moore and Meagan Musseau. The exhibition is curated by Synthetic Collective.
The exhibition, Falling, is inspired by a painting, Falling in Love Again, created by Kiki Kogelnik in 1962. Falling draws from Kogelnik's free and monumental spirit—an evolutionary narrative of the artist and person. It focuses on the period 1960 to 1964, a time of momentous change for her, as she made the move from war-torn Austria to the bright lights of New York via the sun-drenched cities of California. The fifteen paintings included in the exhibition, many of which have not been shown before, are exceptional examples of Kogelnik's use of color and form, that bring together the languages of figuration and abstraction.
Enjoy displays works from the mumok collection from classical modernism to the present day. It is both a survey of the past and a glimpe ahead to the future. The exhibition sets out to convey the intertwining of past and present as a living process of continual reassessment and reevaulation that reflects ever changing socio-political, social-cultural and philosophical developments and discourses. The main themes cut across time and media: the depicition of life in society, the human body and nature, as well as migration and the drawing of boundaries. Kiki Kogelnik is represented by a range of works from the 1960s and 70s.
