Klasse Brigitte Kowanz: Crossing 5.01

The temporary art project for the accessible space between the two U1 subway platforms at the Schwedenplatz station in Vienna’s 1st district was realized by WIENER LINIEN in collaboration with students of professor Brigitte Kowanz’s “Transmedia Art” Department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Based on intense research into this important junction of Vienna and the given context of the two platforms, the students developed various concepts for artistic interventions based on a model in the winter semester 2012/13. The approaches explored the transit character of the space and analyzed the pedestrians’ concrete situation.
