MAK Exhibition Hall
The exhibition FRANZ WEST Merciless is dedicated to the various aspects of the Austrian sculptor and installation artists
work. Besides recent and most recent works by the artist, the presentation at the MAK centers around a powerful installation
which West has created specifically for the central exhibition hall of the MAK and which constitutes his most comprehensive
work so far. The presentation will be accompanied by the screening of numerous West videos as well as new public space installations
in the immediate vicinity of the MAK.
