Kompositum III /​ GOLEM kozek hörlonski

Kompositum III /​ GOLEM

kozek hörlonski conceived a new performative installation against the background of current urban development processes around Vienna’s Main Station. One of the project’s central motifs was a golem, a being that owes his existence to the art of magic, i.e., the use of holy words. Starting from this figure, the collective came up with a number of pictures and scenes that were centered around a mobile installation with an adapted car trailer. Involving visitors as well as residents of the neighborhood and random passersby, workshops run by artists produced a variety of personal golems in clay. A movable golem tower left its starting point, developed a life of its own, circled, and roamed around several areas of the neighborhood (Main Station, Quartier Belvedere, Sonnwendviertel, Arsenal, Wiedner Gürtel), yet always returned to where it had come from.

Performers: Valentin Hessler, Thomas Hörl, Peter Kozek, Selina Lampe, Timon Mörtl, Antonia Prochaska, Sebastiano Sing
