War Damaged Musical Instruments (Pair)

After showcasing works by Ugo Rondinone, Kris Martin, Richard Wright and Edmund de Waal, the Kunsthistorisches Museum has commissioned the artist Susan Philipsz (born 1965) to produce a new installation for the Theseus Temple.

Philipsz is one of the most acclaimed artists working today within the medium of sound, and was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize in 2010. Her work was included in the most recent Documenta in 2012, and has been presented at institutions across the world from MoMA, New York, to the Sydney Biennale. The exhibition will be the first of Susan Philipsz’ work in Austria, and is curated by Jasper Sharp.
