Michael Horowitz

Exactly 50 years ago, the young photographer Michael Horowitz visited the aspiring pop art icon Kiki Kogelnik in New York. The 26-year-old artist from the 4000-soul community of Bleiburg in the Jaun Tal is taking New York by storm. She is at the beginning of a promising career. The communicative young woman soon finds a connection in America to the New York art scene around Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg and Roy Lichtenstein, who develop pop art as a counterpoint to abstract expressionism. At the time, the flamboyant performer created space art images and hangings – sculptures of body outlines in vinyl – that she hangs on coat hooks. Works that are certainly one of their most important today.
