Vik Muniz’s series Verso turns towards an unusual aspect of the visual arts: the reverse side, or verso, of paintings. His collection of faithful reproductions of back views includes masterpieces such as da Vinci's Mona Lisa and van Gogh's Starry Night. He has now included two major works from the Belvedere collection, Gustav Klimt's Kiss and Egon Schiele's The Embrace, to his series. The Belvedere will be the first museum in Vienna to present a solo exhibition of the artist, who resides in New York and Rio de Janeiro, starting 21 March 2018 at the Upper Belvedere.
