LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES* – INTERVENTIONS IN PUBLIC SPACE

As part of the course LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES* - INTERVENTIONS IN PUBLIC SPACE by JOHANNA TINZL, Department of Site-Specific Art (Director: Paul Petritsch) and with curatorial support from CORNELIA OFFERGELD, KÖR Vienna, students have engaged with the wall relief and developed artistic contributions that examine the ideological preconditions, their toxic effects on the present, and the meaningfulness of historical contextualizations.

STUDENTS: JONATHAN DELLAGO, MATTHIAS KÖCK, KONSTANTIN LEITNER, FREDERIC MAIER, ARINA NEKLJUDOVA, GALA ALICA OSTAN OŽBOLT, SISSI PETUTSCHNIG, MICHAEL F. PLESSL, CARMIÑA TARILONTE RODRIGUEZ, MADELEINE R. WYNNE

The conceptualizations of the performative and installative interventions for the wall relief are summarized together with the research results of the art historians INGRID HOLZSCHUH and INGE PODBRECKY as well as the historian FLORIAN WENNINGER in the publication "LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES* - INTERVENTIONS IN PUBLIC SPACE", which was designed by FREDERIC MAIER and MICHAEL F. PLESSL.

The mural "Nobility of Work" on the facade of the house Operngasse 22-24 / Faulmanngasse 2 in Vienna's 4th district was realized as a commissioned work of the municipal Nazi administration in 1938 by the artist Franz Kralicek in a polychrome plaster relief technique. The house itself is part of a major urban planning showcase project of Viennese Austrofascism (1933/34-1938): the redevelopment of the so-called "Freihausgründe".

* Elke Krasny used this phrase at the conference "Marmor. Bronze. Responsibility. Colloquium for Change at Lueger Square", on 7.11.2021 at the Mumok in Vienna.
