SITZ DOCH SEELE (Sit down soul) is this an invitation of a restless spirit to finally rest? Does it express the desire to let go of thoughts and give the soul space to rest? Or is it an invitation to linger and give the object the "Beseeltheit" (soulfulness) that we know from Heinz Frank's works? Does the seat of the soul no longer have to be sought, but simply be made available?

Heinz Frank (1939-2020) Frank's latest solo-exhibitions took place at Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe (2019); Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2019) and Bureau des Réalités, Brussels (2018). His works have been included in numerous group-exhibitions most recently at mumok - Museum of Modern Art, Vienna (2023); MAK - Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna (2022); Riga Biennale, Riga (2020); Museum der Moderne, Salzburg (2019); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2019); Tanya Leighton, Berlin (2019) and Landesgalerie Linz (2018). Frank's works are part of several public collections, including mumok - Museum of Modern Art, Vienna; MAK - Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna; Rupertinum, Salzburg and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, among others.

EX LIBRIS is a series of exhibitions organized by LambdaLambdaLambda at Burgverlag. For each iteration an artist from (or around) our program is invited to pick one printed matter from the inventory of the antiquarian shop, which will be highlighted in a vitrine along with an exhibition by the respective artist. Burgverlag Rare Books is a classical antiquarian bookshop established 1920 in Vienna (Austria). Burgverlag is specialised in selling rare books, incunabula, old prints, autographs and manuscripts. In an adjacent space exhibitions by contemporary artists are organised occasionally. Burgverlag Rare Books is a member of ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers).
