This year’s special program Living Image ventures into the worlds of music and augmented reality: artists who write and produce music or play in bands and at concerts present their musical performances in the form of short video clips. The program was organized in cooperation with the current mumok exhibition Doppelleben. Bildende Künstler_innen machen Musik [Double Lives. Visual Artists Making Music].
“Artists do not conform to systems and barriers,“ says Edek Bartz, who has curated the current mumok exhibition Doppelleben together with Eva Badura-Triska. The exhibition showcases artists who have produced a musical work in addition to their visual art. The phenomenon of artists writing, performing, or producing music, or joining band projects has been gaining in importance since early Modernism. Currently, a striking number of visual artists are also active in music.
Living Image is curated by Daniela Hahn, who works as a curator at mumok and is part of the curatorial team of the current exhibition Doppelleben. Bildende Künstler_innen machen Musik.
Projects with renowned art institutions like the Albertina Museum in Vienna, the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, the Shanghai Himalayas Museum and the Leica Gallery in Singapore show that the art scene is ready for the new dimensions that augmented art can bring.
