OPEN celebrates the opening of the Heidi Horten Collection's new home: a museum founded by the patron and collector Heidi Goëss-Horten. Inspired by her ideas, the building was built and designed by the next ENTERprise architects in Vienna, led by Marie-Therese Harnoncourt-Fuchs and Ernst J. Fuchs.
The exhibition focuses on the building’s architecture, as well as the history of the site and its predecessor buildings, and marks the inauguration of the building as a stage for art. It features a selection of thirty works, offering an illustrative insight into the collection, which has been cultivated and expanded by Heidi Goëss-Horten over decades and includes a large number of recent acquisitions of contemporary art. The spotlight is shone on the collection’s openness and diversity on the one hand and its artistic and thematic centres on the other.
