“The Beauty of Diversity”, curated by Angela Stief, shows the richness and diversity of the Albertina’s contemporary collections and the indispensable attention to women and LGBTQIA+ artists, people of colour, aboriginal positions and self-taught artists who stand out against the contrasting backdrop of the Old Masters.
Today, the art world is intensively concerned with identity-political issues relating to class, race and gender. The broad spectrum of artistic approaches, stylistic and thematic approaches is a necessary addition to the art-historical canon represented in the Albertina, from Michelangelo and Raphael to Dürer, Rembrandt and Rubens to Goya, Schiele, Picasso and Warhol.
