HOFSTETTER KURT | EIN HOCH dem Planet der Pendler
November 19 - December 1, 2019
In 1993 Hofstetter Kurt realised Austria's first permanent video computer art installation in public space - "PLANET OF THE COMMUTERS WITH THE THREE TIME-MOONS" - in the highly frequented underground and railway station Landstraße / Wien Mitte. It is about parallelism and circulation, time and infinity, as they affect the commuting people in this place unchanged to the present day.
After more than 26 years, the art book of the same name is now being published. Then as now, Hofstetter Kurt's artistic work proves to be an aesthetic communication of phenomena of being on event horizons, as Barbara Doser states in her essay.
On the occasion of the edition of this art book published by SCHLEBRÜGGE.EDITOR, the Konzett Gallery presents selected works by Hofstetter Kurt that are connected with this pioneering work up to the present day.
