Stella Rollig


More than two centuries ago, the art museum has been conceived as a cornerstone of the then developing bourgeois society, to affirm values being defined by the new ruling class. Today, legitimating an art institution is increasingly being argued for with its role as a medium for critical discourse. How can the museum break with its own authoritarian tradition, and involve the audience in a reflection on its paradigms, and beyond?

Stella Rollig is the Director of Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, an author and curator. In 1994 as Austrian Federal Curator for Fine Arts she founded Depot – Art and Discussion, a space that embodied her aims of redefining the art institution as a place of activity discourse and involvement. At Lentos, she has realized exhibitions and projects with a focus on questioning the role of museums and collections in the 21st century.
