In its performance series “Four by Twelve,” Neuer Kunstverein will be the first art institution in Vienna to organize and discuss live performances transmitted through live-stream video technology.
On four days at noon, Bernadette Anzengruber, Carola Dertnig, Ana Hoffner and Jakob Lena Knebl perform online in the Kunstverein. The live-stream stratagem means they can reach a broad-based, global public and still generate direct interaction between performers and recipients. These new options for interaction form a key theme in an exhibition based on this project, which will be rounded off at the end with a discussion at Neuer Kunstverein about the opportunities, challenges and problems. Keynote speaker is Catherine Wood, curator at the Tate Modern in London.
Curator: Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein
Co-curator: Ilona Braun
