Time Is Thirsty – Podcast

The first edition of our Kunsthalle Wien Podcast takes you on a journey to the exhibition Time is Thirsty. In a conversation with curator Luca Lo Pinto, we chat about the possibility of a trip through time, why it would be boring to show only artworks from 1992 – the founding year of the Kunsthalle Wien – and which artwork he would preserve for eternity. Florence Bonnefous of Galerie Air de Paris as well as the artists Sissel Tolaas and Jason Dodge also provide insights into their contributions to the exhibition.

Time Is Thirsty

Time Is Thirsty offers an expansive installation of art, language, smell and sound, artefacts and everyday objects, in which the timelines shift and the current past, as well as the speculative future, seem to merge into one another: a repertoire of gestures and emotions which can resonate physically and mentally as an MDMAdeleine to be swallowed. A kaleidoscope of signs between which one can lose oneself.

Heinz Frank. The Angle of the End Always Comes from Behind – Studio Visit

Enlivened by a dash of irony and with what appears to be playful ease, Heinz Frank’s formal-visual, intellectual, and material balancing acts, which often take inspiration from diverse cultural strands, recombine what society and tradition would keep strictly separate in manifold variations. Before the opening of his exhibition The Angle of the End Always Comes from Behind at Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz we visited Frank in his studio and talked to him about his “art”.
