An exhibition project by the Salzburger Kunstverein

Held throughout the galleries and spaces of the Salzburger Kunstverein, 20 Propositions is a series of exhibitions, performances and screenings strung together as a collective whole. Notions of the temporary and the ephemeral are prioritised in this collaborative project. Produced in homage to the 1998 exhibition 40 Days 20 Exhibitions by Hildegund Amanshauser, this new version takes a different format but arises out a similar spirit of flux and engagement. 20 Propositions also includes five artists teaching at the 2018 International Summer Academy: Emeka Okereke, Jakob Kolding and Mark Van Yetter will have solo exhibitions, and Ei Arakawa with Christian Naujoks and their class will present a collective performance.

Curated by Séamus Kealy

Each project phase has its own opening event. The Sunset Kino, Austria’s only outdoor avant-garde cinema, includes seven of the propositions in the form of screenings of contemporary video and film.
