Together at Art
Sundays for children (ages 5 – 11) and grown-ups
15 April, 20 May, 17 June 2007, at 3 p.m.
Duration: 1.5 h (incl. practical work in the studio)

Welcome to an afternoon at the Academy of Art! Theme: the human being. Equipped with drawing pad and pens we start out on a ramble through the history of modern art. It is a quest to find out the myriad possibilities of depicting the human body; we trace the various styles and discover tender impressionist compositions as well as wild explosions of colour and object art that is full of humour. In conclusion the sketches are finished off in the studio with unconventional painting materials.

Viennese music is the most kaleidoscopic in the world. It can whoop high in exhilaration, yet dive down into the depths, it can luxuriously entertain, and yet question itself and its whole history and existence in a couple of bars. An apotheosis of triad chords and of indefatigable wooing in perspiring corporeality, death’s boot camp – all this is Viennese music, magnetic, addictive and above all enticing the listener to join in the jumble of soul and loins, spirit and solar plexus, hormones and intellectual yearning for the transcendent.

Talk in Tresor:
23 June 2007, 6 pm

An exclusive curator-guided tour through the exhibition will first of all provide a view of the arrangement, concepts and meaning of the exhibits. Afterwards a select panel of experts will discuss the connection between eroticism, pornography and art: lusty coupling or incompatible opposites?

who do you think feels at home with himself
who do you think feels at home
who do you think feels at home with himself at home
who do you think feels at home
when he’s at home by himself
who do you think feels at home with himself
when he’s at home
who do you think feels at home with himself
when he’s at home by himself
who do you think

(translated by Elfriede Gerstl)

The poem by Elfriede Gerstl integrated into the performance questions the possibility of an immediate identity awareness. (Being at home with herself (bei-sich-sein) was for years only possible for the poet in isolation).
