To be opened by Dr. Elisabeth Von Samsonow

Based on a collection of over two thousand five hundred terms and phrases taken from the context of art, an interactive text generator for the website project www.worte.at emerged in the course of the project. The point of departure for the planned exhibition is the video work „collective authorship“, which came together in the course of the last few years and in which a variety of persons from the field of art select a term from the „word list“ provided by the text generator and make a personal statement about it.
