Art or the language of the visual artsis a language of its own. Some people do notunderstand it immediately, but still feelextremely attracted to it, and so it eventuallybecomes part of their lives. Vienna and Austria, like manyother cities and countries rich in history, deal withcontemporary art in a highly differentiated way. It would make me very happyif Vienna could become both

a place of exchange anda place where to present exhibitions and projects thathave never been shown here before, so as to encourage new discussions. Moreover, I think it isextremely important to support projects of an international scale. Asking my colleagueswhy they consider it a privilege to combine a passion ora deep interest with their profession is like asking a whyhe wanted to become a .

However, there is one projectI feel particularly attached to, probably because itwas the starting point for my idea of this exhibition. It is the work BLACK BED bythe British artist RACHEL WHITEREAD, who created a cast of the spacebetween the bed and the floor below. This summer, we aregoing to introduce the work of the Argentinian artist TomásSaraceno, who lives in Berlin. I am very muchlooking forward to it,

for this will be hisfirst exhibition in Vienna.
