Eva Grubinger: Cafe Nihilismus

Eva Grubinger: Cafe Nihilismus
Library Shelf Location 18.GRUB
Publication Date 2014

A rapid development of technology and science, a resultant feeling that reality is speeding up and even out of control: the mood and texture of our current moment strongly resemble those of a century ago. In Eva Grubinger's exhibition 'Cafe Nihilismus,' the two eras interweave. Framed by yellow neon writing, the sequence of sculptures and 2-D works suggests a phantasmal bar: coffee culture and the discursive space around it being central, not least to Vienna, in the early twentieth century and now a staple of twenty-first-century life.
