Art Calendar

Art Calendar 2011

As of the end of 2010, the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein also has been offering a catalogue that presents its collection and may be viewed online by anyone interested in fine arts. In the past two years Mr Robin Hemmer, Schaan/Hamburg, has been committing himself to the task of preparing that instrument as part of a project. Therefore it is now possible to view the complete collection of the museum at any time. However, the Kunstagenda will be maintained since it provides a unique opportunity to present topical sections taken from the overall museum collection that has been rapidly growing in the last years.

This year’s Agenda is dedicated to the subject of Liechtenstein from an artistic point of view. As early as 1999 the Kunstagenda was exclusively dedicated to the arts created within Liechtenstein. That was even before the grand opening of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein. Since that time the art scene has changed drastically, and the existence of the Kunstmuseum has increasingly attracted foreign artists’ interest in the Principality of Liechtenstein. The museum was able to document both developments in its collection though naturally not in any range that could claim to be empirical. Yet the artwork from and about Liechtenstein shows an interesting dialogue between the art created within the Principality of Liechtenstein and that from other countries. Additionally, several pieces were created within the context of an artist-in-residence program that was realized as initiated by Waltraud van Riemsdijk-Ritter at the Atelier Elf in Triesen, especially during the latter half of the 1990s. Other pieces came to be in connection with exhibitions that took place in Liechtenstein. In the future, the museum will continue to place a special emphasis on the documentation of that dialogue as part of its art collecting activities, particularly because of its priority to collect and present international art.

The Kunstagenda
The Liechtenstein Kunstagenda has been published for more than twenty years now. First it was published by the Staatliche Kunstsammlung Liechtenstein, and since the year of 2000 it has been prepared by the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein. In this calendar, the museum presents works from its collection, including works that are regularly on show in the collections, as well as more rarely displayed works and new acquisitions.
