Alfred Hrdlicka

Alfred Hrdlicka was an Austrian artist, born in Vienna in 1928. His work spanned many disciplines, including painting, sculpture, and graphic design. Hrdlicka is best known for his large-scale figurative sculptures, particularly his Apollo and Daphne, which was included in the 1981 Venice Biennale. He also created several public sculptures, such as his sculpture of a man raising his arms in front of the Vienna State Opera. Throughout his career, Hrdlicka was outspoken about the political and social issues of his time, often using his artwork as a form of protest. He was interested in depicting the human condition and exploring themes of injustice. He collaborated with theater groups and social movements to produce dramatic works that highlighted injustice and the plight of the underrepresented. His work has been exhibited in museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in Vienna, the Kunsthalle Wien, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
