ZEITGENOSSEN. Art & Knowledge
Thursday, November 17, 2005, 19.00
Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts - Intermedia Institute
1063 Budapest, Kmety György utca 27.
Ursula Hentschläger und Zelko Wiener will present three of their
media works, whose quality lies in sensually staging the creation of
art and knowledge. The primary emphasis of this work lies on the
philosophical and dramaturgical confrontation of informational
constructs with levels of perception. Imagery, blocks of text and
tonal spaces are interwoven with one another and can be experienced
interactively during the presentation.
The presentation will be in English!
A co-operation between the Austrian Cultural Forum Budapest, C3 -
Center for Culture & Communication and the Intermedia Department of
the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
