The Vienna Biennale 2015 commissioned me to take photos of the performance festival held in June in Vienna. They wanted to have conceptual images, focussing on the surrounding as well as on the performers. I developed a photographic concept producing multidimensional images which look similar to double or multiple exposures BUT ARE NOT. The images were used to illustrate a book on the festival.
And what a book that was. With foldouts, double page spreads, a USB stick featuring videos of the performances, above all a long text by Peter Weibel… it doesn’t get much better.
The beautiful layout was done by Klaus Mitter, the videos were done by Ewa Stern, the production was financed by the Vienna Biennale, and managed by Herwig Beo Labostella. What a pleasure to work with such people.
