Positionen zur Malerei, Kunsthalle Wien (and Museumsquartier/Messepalast), Vienna (26.05.1993–25.07.1993) and Deichtorhallen, Hamburg (14.10.1993-2.1.1994), an early collaboration between Kasper König and Hans Ulrich Obrist. The exhibition included over 40 artists who worked in the medium of painting; a key view of central positions of the 1980s and 1990s. Artists of different generations were grouped together in the show, and the experimental installation, which was widely noted, referred back to certain classic aesthetics of the 19th century Salon. Exhibited artists included: Georg Baselitz, Francesco Clemente, Marlene Dumas, Günter Förg, Leon Golub, Per Kirkeby, Marina Lassnig, Oehlen, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Rob Ryman, Luc Tuymans, etc.
