The Vienna Fair tries to escape the dying of 2nd or 3rd class art fairs by specializing on its greater region: Central and Eastern European Art.


If you are interested in contemporary art from this region, it is worth a visit. Otherwise it is a very local and small art show: It attracted 15.000 visitors. Of the 126 Galleries were:


  • 46 Austrian Galleries
  • 55 West-European Galleries
  • 21 East-European Galleries
  • 1 Israeli Gallery
  • 1 US American Gallery


Ropac Gallery, Salzburg and Paris, sold Gilbert & Georges work “Sodom” for € 275.000 / US $ 425.000 to a Viennese collector. The boat sculpture is by Erwin Wurm.


Spectacular was the work “AZ007” by the Italian artist Arcangelo Sassolino at Nicola von Sengens Gallery, Zürich: A massive hydraulic pump was bursting slowly a huge piece of wood. It was quite exciting. The gallery offered it for € 35.000 / US $ 54.000.

Kalfayan Galleries, Athens, gave a one man show to the Greek artist Edouard Sacaillan who does modern icon like paintings with lots of gold leaves on it

Interesting was also the installation by Jan Mioduszewski. It was shown at the Polish gallery LOKAL_30, Warsaw. He does fake furniture sculptures/paintings/installations:

The sculpture titled “BlaBlaBla” by Fabian Seiz at Layr Wuestenhagen Contemporary, Vienna, was sold for € 5.000 / US $ 7.750. I think his low-tech bricolage works were boring, but obviously someone else had another opinion about it.


I liked the photos by the Biennale artist Pawel Wolberg about the madness of every-day-life in Israel. Dvir Gallery, Tel Aviv, sold them for € 7.500 / US $ 11.600.

Like Cologne - also in Vienna: The unavoidable (very decorative) Förg paintings. Offered for € 36.000 / US $ 56.000 at Thoman Gallery, Innsbruck Austria.


In general I think this years Vienna Fair was better than last years - when you could see for instants a lot of similar paintings in decorative colours by local hero Jakob Gasteiger.


The focus on Central Eastern European art seens to me a strategy to survive in the global competition of art fairs.

Vienna art fair seems to be an interesting art fair.

I wonder what the Eastern Europe focus will be like when the credit crunch fully hits these countries.
