viennacontemporary 2018 | Living Image

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 organised in cooperation with the current mumok exhibition Doppelleben. Bildende Künstler_innen machen Musik [Double Lives. Visual Artists Making Music]. A selection from mumok will be included in this presentation.

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 importance since early Modernism. Currently, a striking number of visual artists are also active in music. Accordingly, this year’s special program Living Image presents, in cooperation with the mumok exhibition, videos of artist’s musical performances. Concert recordings of the mumok exhibition are presented together with selected contributions of the fair’s open call. Using the Artvive App transforms the film stills into moving images.

Artivive is an augmented reality tool that allows artists to create new dimensions of art by linking a digital layer to a physical artwork. Artivive opens doors to a whole new world of possibilities. Artists can take visitors on a journey, extending artworks with animations and videos or show how the artworks were inspired and created. Artivive offers limited free accounts to artists. They can register directly on our website https://artivive.com.

Museums and galleries seeking to enhance and maximize their visitors’ experience can use Artivive. It offers a new and innovative way for the audience to interact with the exhibits. Visitors need only to use their own smartphones or tablets in order to experience the layer of augmented reality. Projects with renowned art institutions like the Albertina Museum Vienna, the Belvedere Museum 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.

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.

Hahn studied art history and history in Vienna and Trieste. As artistic director of the Schaukasten – Interessenraum für Zeitgenossenschaft (2011–2015) she developed the program and curated exhibitions. In 2014 Hahn worked as project coordinator and research assistant for the Austrian contribution to the Architecture Biennale in Venice. As the curatorial assistant at the art collection SAMMLUNG VERBUND Vienna, she co-curated international exhibitions and contributed to scientific publications. Since 2017 she has worked at mumok and was part of the curatorial team of Eva Badura-Triska and Edek Bartz.
