Aims and Scope

In a comprehensive overview and with multi-faceted background information, the work documents the Vienna University of Applied Arts’ art festival of the same name. The centerpiece of this hybrid of a book and multimedia reportage is a digital data carrier with short films and interviews with the participating performance artists. The diverse contributions are supported by texts and artistic photography. The book thus becomes an account of past events, which – as sudden interventions in public space – were difficult to capture, but have here been compiled into a permanent exhibition. This virtual exhibition space is introduced by contributions from the two curators, Gerald Bast and Peter Weibel.
