Charity pop-up exhibition
“VISIONS OF PROMINENT HEADS”
August 1st – September 30th, 2020, Wed to Sun 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
From August 1st to September 30th, Halbturn Castle presents one of the most extraordinary collections of paintings in the world. Around 60 works and exhibits from the collection of the Viennese entrepreneur David Ungar-Klein are exhibited under the title “Visions of prominent people”.
You can see self-painted pictures of sports legends like Mark Spitz, Karl Schranz, Markus Rogan and Mirna Jukic or the second man on the moon, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
The 32nd SK Rapid Wien master plate – on loan from SK Rapid Wien – will also be exhibited together with the visionary picture of ex-manager Werner Kuhn. In addition, top-class innovators and researchers, such as Austrian-born Nobel laureate Eric Kandel, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and Tesla co-founder Martin Eberhard are represented in the exhibition. But also top politicians like Nobel Peace Prize winner F.W. de Klerk, Hans-Dietrich Genscher and Mario Monti also used brushes and paint to put their visions on paper.
The works created in the past one and a half decades bring personal experiences, life themes and visions of their top-class authors to the point with the means of painting. With the unique private collection, David Ungar-Klein combines the claim of building bridges between the various specialist disciplines and bringing together people from different areas: “Our collection is an expression of an international network of exceptional personalities who perform excellently in their specialist areas and their achievements together creatively and artistically have reflected. The exhibition is intended to stimulate people to discuss and think about visions.”
The net proceeds of the charity pop-up exhibition will go to a non-profit organization in Burgenland – the Cenacolo community in Kleinfrauenhaid.
The Cenacolo community offers young people the opportunity to make a fresh start in crisis situations.
