The collector Karlheinz Essl made his first extensive journey through Australia as early as 2000, in which he was able to get to know the art and culture of the indigenous people of Australia. Fascinated by the independent spirituality and force of the works of the Aboriginal people, in 2001 he organised the exhibition >Dreamtime<, which, with many loan works, illustrated the enormous spectrum of art of the Australian Aborigines. Just three years later Karlheinz Essl undertook another long journey to Australia, out of which came the >Spirit & Vision< exhibition in the Essl Museum in 2004. Today, the Essl Collection owns one of the most important collections of Aboriginal art, which has repeatedly been presented in dialogue with international art.read on
