Günther Domenig Architecture Exhibition

Located at four unique venues with a packed programme over four months, this Carinthia-wide exhibition shows for the first time the spectacular oeuvre of one of Austria’s most prominent architects: Günther Domenig.

Exhibitions at the MMKK (Museum of Modern Art Carinthia) and the Architektur Haus Kärnten (Architecture House Carinthia) encompass a wide range of Günther Domenig’s artistic and architectural body of work.Two of his key works, the Domenig Steinhaus and Heft/ Hüttenberg, will themselves become exhibition objects and play host to a comprehensive programme.

The exhibitions will take place from June 10 to October 16, 2022. Günther Domenig: DIMENSIONAL is an exhibition at four locations in Carinthia that show the Austrian architect’s work as a comprehensive presentation, contextualised through contemporary artistic and architectural positions.

Exhibition Dates:
June 12 – October 16, 2022
Tues – Sun, 10 am – 6pm

The MMKK (Museum of Modern Art Carinthia) explores the relationship between art and architecture, while the Architektur Haus Kärnten (Archictecture House Carinthia) focuses on Günther Domenig’s impact on contemporary architectural production.

The Domenig Steinhaus and Heft / Hüttenberg are buildings designed by Günther Domenig and therefore themselves exhibition objects; these locations will be “activated” by artists.

The physicality of the Domenig Steinhaus will be investigated through the medium of performance, curated by the Tanzquartier Wien.

The former regional exhibition centre at Heft will be opened up to the public again for the first time in decades and features contemporary artistic interventions and works by students from selected art and architecture universities.

The exhibition is accompanied by two books published by JOVIS Verlag.

The first publication In Resonance, published in June 2022, creates a dialogue between over thirty Domenig buildings photographed by Gerhard Maurer and an essayistic exploration by the contemporary writer Anna Baar.

The second publication In Reflection documents retrospectively the exhibitions, the lectures and the artistic works and will also include texts by relevant architectural theorists. This and other content will be made permanently accessible to a broad public in the online archive from June 10, 2022 onwards.

In Resonance available in June 2022
In Reflection available in December 2022
