Qompendium is an evolving and ever-changing platform for philosophy, art, culture and science, represented by a series of print publications: magazines, books and monographs. Furthermore, it is enriched by a gallery concept, a work shop and a fast-moving online portal.
Layr Wuestenhagen was established by Emanuel Layr and Thomas Wüstenhagen as a project room for contemporary art with an emphasis on young emerging artists from Austria and abroad, who work in various media (painting, photography, film/video, sculpture/object, installation). In September 2005 the gallery moved to a larger space (including viewing galleries, offices and related spaces) in Vienna's city center, surrounded by established as well as up and coming commercial galleries. Layr Wuestenhagen has maintained an imaginative programme of solo exhibitions, punctuated by frequent group shows. A substantial range of the gallery work takes place in cooperation with national and international institutions such as museums, galleries and art fairs. Since its foundation, the gallery has participated in international art fairs. They represent artists: Julien Bismuth, Marius Engh (whose work is displayed), Tillman Kaiser, Mahony and others.
