Safety Curtain

The Trojan Horse

In the Donizetti-Salon at the Wiener Staatsoper, museum in progress temporarily exhibited original works by Martha Jungwirth, which featured many-layered references to the Safety Curtain. museum in progress also realized a lithograph with Martha Jungwirth on the occasion of her “Safety Curtain”. For this edition, an exhibition took place in the displays of the PRIVAT BANK of the Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich in Vienna at Operngasse 2. As part of the two exhibitions, a poetic text by Friederike Mayröcker, which she had written for the project, was also presented.
