artreview.comGeorg Kargl, 1955 – 2018 / ArtReviewGeorg Kargl, art dealer and founder of Georg Kargl Fine Arts and of the Society of Projective Aesthetics, has died aged 62. Prior to starting his own gallery in 1998, Kargl founded the Galerie Metropol in 1980 alongside gallerist Christian Meyer: Galerie Metropol took an initial interest in Art Nouveau, but changed course by focusing on contemporary art. Georg Kargl Fine Arts was one of the first galleries to set up space in the Schleifmühlgasse area of Vienna, which is now hosts a number of popular contemporary art galleries. In 2005, Kargl opened an experimental exhibition space called ‘BOX’ under the curatorship of Fiona Liewehr, which is dedicated to presenting the work of young artists. In addition, a third space, the former business premises, became a permanent art space in 2006.12

mitpress.mit.eduWhat Was Contemporary Art?Not only does contemporary art have a history, but all works of art were once contemporary to the artist and culture that produced them. Contemporary art in the early twenty-first century is often discussed as if the very idea of art that is contemporary is new. Yet all works of art were once contemporary. In What Was Contemporary Art? Richard Meyer reclaims the contemporary from historical amnesia, and gives the contemporary its own art history. By exploring episodes in the study, exhibition, and reception of early twentieth-century art and visual culture, Meyer retrieves moments in the history of once-current art and redefines “the contemporary” as a condition of being alive to and alongside other moments, artists, and objects.A generous selection of images, many in color—from works of fine art to museum brochures and magazine covers—support and extend Meyer's narrative. These works were contemporary to their own moment. Now, in Meyer's account, they become contemporary to ours as well.1
