35 | Artistic Director, viennacontemporary, Vienna, Austria

Christina Steinbrecher-Pfandt is advancing the international presence of contemporary art in Vienna, a city that for many is still associated with the 19th and early 20th centuries but which she believes to be entering a renaissance. In her role as director of viennacontemporary, which was set up in 2015, she has focused on central and eastern European art, treating the city as a connection between east and west and curating a host of satellite events. Previously she directed the fair’s earlier incarnation, VIENNAFAIR The New Contemporary, launched in 2012, after three years as director of Art Moscow from 2009–12. Steinbrecher-Pfandt is also a collector of contemporary art.
