Der Hausfreund

A rediscovery of Friedrich von Berzeviczy-Pallavicini's eccentric oeuvre

Drawing on the comprehensive holdings of the artist’s work in the collection of the Vienna University of Applied Arts, the exhibition highlights Friedrich von Berzeviczy-Pallavicini (1909–1989), once a colourful personality in the milieu of the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts, as a contemporary and highly topical rediscovery.

In contrast to the disciplined aesthetics of the Wiener Werkstätte, the works Berzeviczy-Pallavicini left behind are characterised by a mannerist and original language of forms.

Although hardly shown to date, they constitute a rediscovery for today’s world of art. Opening a dialogue with works by contemporary international artists as well as related historical positions, the exhibition Der Hausfreund takes up, reflects, and reinterprets important motifs of the artist’s production.
