Our research project is physically located at the main campus of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, in the only unrestored building which used to be an auditorium of the former School for Veterinary Medicine.
Address: Altes Auditorium, Anton von Webern Platz 1, 1030 Wien.
The building is the northern half-round element on the back side of building S on the campus.
We run our own project-related experiments with sound and media in this room, but it is also a publicly accessible listening space. We integrate external artistic positions which are related to our research agenda, that is, working with digital sound and time-dependency.
Conceptually, we refer to the legendary Mold museum (Schimmelmuseum) by artist Dieter Roth. Roth is well-known for his works with (bio-)degradable art and established his Schimmelmuseum in 1992 both as a workplace and a museum for the produced works.
Currently, the following works are on display:
- Till Bovermann and Almut Schilling: CD-R(ot) – sound installation
- Angélica Castelló: Magnetic Room – objects and sound installation
- Klaus Filip: Dust a bit – opto-acoustic installation
- Thomas Grill: Midnight song – sound object
- Juliana Herrero and Thomas Grill: Antenna – sound installation
- Martin Howse: Enrichment and depletion – installation
- Nicole Krenn and Thomas Grill: Fields of Haze – audiovisual installation
- Tobias Leibetseder: Fragments – installation
- Dario Sanfilippo: Phase transitions – sound installation
- Almut Schilling: The Carrier – Experimental system
- Mario de Vega: Intermission – sounding object
- Thomas Grill: Mutual understanding – sound installation
Details about the space, the works and the artists can be found in our exhibition catalog.
During July and August, the Auditorium can be visited upon individual appointment. Starting with September it will again be open for visits on Wednesdays from 5pm through 7pm and on Fridays from 2pm through 3pm, except closing days of the university.
