LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES*

Within the context of the course LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES* – INTERVENTIONS IN PUBLIC SPACE of JOHANNA TINZL, Department of Site-Specific Art with the curatorial support of CORNELIA OFFERGELD, KÖR Vienna, students confronted the mural and developed artistic contributions which examine the ideological presuppositions, their toxic effects on the present, and the meaningfulness of historical contextualization.

The concepts of the installations and performative interventions and for the mural are compiled together with the research results of the art historians INGRID HOLZSCHUH and INGE PODBRECKY and the historian FLORIAN WENNINGER in a publication.


The mural »Nobility of Labor« on the façade of the house Operngasse 22-24 / Faulmanngasse 2 in Vienna's 4th district was realized by the artist Franz Kralicek as a commissioned work of the municipal NS-administration in 1938. The house itself is part of a large urban planning showcase project of Viennese Austrofascism (1933/34-1938): the redevelopment of the so-called »Freihausgründe«.

LIVING AND NON-LIVING BODIES* – INTERVENTIONS IN PUBLIC SPACE is a cooperation project of KÖR Public Art Vienna and the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
