Mathias Poledna: Songs to Remember
Mittwoch, 27. Januar, 19 Uhr, Aula
Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.
Mathias Poledna (*1965 Vienna/A, lives and works in Vienna, Los Angeles/USA) belongs to a generation of artists, who at the outset of the 1990s, with recourse to both the critical attitude towards institutions developed by the art of the 1960s and 1970s and to the conceptual practices of inquiry, analysis, and documentation, called into question the conditions under which art was being created and pushed for its re-politicization. With reference to the mass media’s collective memory of images, Poledna has repeatedly focused on the visualization of historic constellations in both political and popular culture contexts.
