TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9 AT 7 PM
Exhibition opening by Bazon Brock
Book presentation with Thomas Macho
10 - 27 November 2021
On the occasion of the awarded Austrian Art Prize for Media Art 2020 to Hofstetter Kurt, Konzett Gallery is releasing the publication Hofstetter Kurt - Ich schaue in den Himmel um mich zu erden (I look up to the sky to ground myself), at Verlag für Moderne Kunst. In the focus are Hofstetter Kurt's X-stills, moments in the light of simultaneous dawn and dusk on earth. Embedded in an overall view of his oeuvre by Barbara Doser and a walk through the flowering gardens of Bazon Brock's theories, the historical location in the art world takes place.
In the exhibition, the limited editions X-stills_I, handmade prints, and Sternenpartituren_I, lenticular images from the Suite Irrational, are on view for the first time.
In the book presentation Thomas Macho talks with the authors Bazon Brock, Barbara Doser, Philipp Konzett and the artist Hofstetter Kurt about the "... massive and intriguing monograph exploring of the work of the Vienna-based media art pioneer Hofstetter Kurt. Part theoretical examination, part poetic exploration, it is dense, lyrical, and provocative." (LEONARDO MIT Press Review by Azby Brown, October 2021)
