Hardly any other representative of Austrian contemporary art has been as fundamentally misunderstood as Cornelius Kolig. In the art world, the grandson of the expressionist Anton Kolig caused a furor for decades. Cornelius Kolig’s unorthodox forms of artistic expression were critically acclaimed, but his opposition to bourgeois moral concepts made him a persona non grata. His unease with the art establishment grew and he began to build his own paradise. In the documentary "A Glimpse of Paradise - Cornelius Kolig" by Horst Ebner, the actual picture of the multi-layered artist is traced.
This title, among other ORF music & performing arts highlights, will be presented at the upcoming Avant Première Music + Media Market 2023.
