The Role of KunstHausWien © Friedensreich Hundertwasser, October 1990

The architecture of KunstHausWien would be a bastion against the dictatorhip of the straigth line, the ruler and T-square, a bridghehead against the grid system and the chaos of the absurd.

Art must meet man´s and nature´s pace.
Art must respect nature and the laws of nature.
Art must respect man and man´s inspiration for true and durable values.
Art must again be a bridge between the creativity of nature and the creativity of man.
Art must regain its universal function for all and not be just a fashionable business for insiders.

Art must free itself from the ties of guided intellectual tutorhip.
Art should not suffer speculation and cultural industrialisation.
Art should not endure dogmatic enslavement through negative theories.
Art must have a purpose.
Art must create lasting values.
The courage to strive for beauty in harmony with nature.
The task of KunstHausWien is to achieve these goals.
