Kurt Kren, Box 3, Szondi-Test, Detail, 1973. Linen case with 8-mm film reel, b/w photographs, cadre plan, notebook.
The exhibition Film and more. From the archives of Kurt Kren and Ernst Schmidt jr. is dedicated to two authoritative filmmakers of the Austrian post-war avant-garde and gives an insight into the artistic and cinematic discussions of the 1960s and 1970s.
The written estate of Ernst Schmidt jr. (1938-1988) was donated to mumok 2015 as a donation. In 2018, the estate of Kurt Kren (1929-1998) was also on permanent loan from the Republic of Austria: a reason and an incentive to make a selection of these two collections available to the public in a presentation, and thus the two contemporaries, who also have a lot of artistic value united to introduce together.
