"Great, great, great…" Andy Warhol
Kiki Kogelnik was born in 1935 in Bleiburg. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and quickly came into contract with international art stars such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Tom Wesselmann. This inspired her – without Kogelnik ever clearly wanting to be described as a Pop Art artist. She developed a very individual style, which was characterised by an ironic, often distant imagery. Shortly after her death in Vienna in 1997, Wesselmann said: "She was not Pop, she was strictly KIKI"

2013 – Christian Ludwig Attersee in the Ronacher art room
Christian Ludwig Attersee was born in 1940 in Pressburg/Slovakia and moved to Austria in 1944. Attersee spent his youth in Aschach near Linz and in Attersee in Upper Austria – that's where the pseudonym Attersee comes from. He made a name for himself, not only as a visual artist, but also as a musician, writer, object maker, designer, stage designer and film maker. Above all however, Attersee is considered as one of the most significant representatives of objective painting in Europe in the last 40 years.
