Words ‘Vienna’ and ‘art’ (any kind) historically tend to be put along each other quite frequently. The Albertina Museum has proven this point since XVIII century from the times of being Maria Christina’s (Maria Theresa’s favorite daughter) residence. It houses one of the richest and largest collections in the world, including masterpieces of Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall and more.
The picture is taken on Albertina’s temporary exhibition ‘Spaces of Color’ by Viennese Actionist Hermann Nitsch (available till August 11th). According to his own words, he prefers blood (of animals) to colors. If you don’t happen to be a fan of performance art (as myself), this is not your cup of tea.
