Gernot Wieland

Gernot Wieland is an artist based in Berlin whose films, drawings, lecture performances and installations provide a commentary on the need for a sense of human belonging within inherited social, political and psychological processes. In his films, dreamscapes, storytelling, reality and neuroses of recollection are figured as paradigms and examples to address the problematic nature of exceptions and norms essential to systems of power and control. Memory plays a central role in the production of meanings often left incomplete, opening space for poetic processes to weave the fabric of the social in a non-capitalist form of exchange. The works examine conditions of fact and fiction with humour and sincerity.

Declan Clarke. The Museum of Broadcasting and Loneliness

The Museum of Broadcasting and Loneliness focuses on the history of electronic communication, its development over the last century, and how this legacy manifests itself currently in an unsteady, evolving Europe. As humanity furthers its awareness of the solar system and the greater universe, what is the significance of sending a transmission and to have that transmission in turn received?

Per Dybvig

The drawings of Norwegian artist Per Dybvig depict the everyday; often snippets from quieter, quotidian moments. The artist has been invited to spend some time in Salzburg to draw the city and its inhabitants. Himself an unimposing type, he has done his rounds in the cafés, bars and the streets of Salzburg. Like an observer and story-teller of times past, Per is often sitting in a corner, half-invisible, sketching. With discretion and an empathetic eye, he illustrates the people and scenarios before him, revealing a tender humanity on the one hand, and offering an offbeat antidote to the faster-paced mechanisms of our time.

Omer Fast. The Invisible Hand

In 2019, the Salzburger Kunstverein commissioned Omer Fast to make his astonishing film, Der oylem iz a goylem, based on a Jewish fairy-tale. From 2020 on we will present a long-term installation of Omer Fast’s VR-film The Invisible Hand, based on the same fairy-tale, as an expression of our ongoing collaboration with this world-renowned artist.
