The exhibition To Define and Punish features ten young European artists: Adrian Buschmann (GER), Bernhard Buff (GER), Michael Fanta (AT), Karine Fauchard (F), Julie Gufler (DK), Toke Flyvholm (DEN), Michèle Pagel (DEN), Thea Moeller (GER), Lazar Lyutakov (BG) and Mads Westrup (DEN).
With a few exceptions, all are students or alumni from Akademie der Bildenden Künste (Daniel Ricther Klasse) in Vienna – by many considered the leading art academy in Europe.

We’re excited about this powerful showcase of young European talent.
