A project to facilitate encounters with “Lebenskünstler” (life artists). The stages upon which these artists live their lives offer opportunities to take part in joint projects on location. Salzburg 2012-13.
About the Project
- Field studies, in which we come into contact with people in and around Salzburg who are artistically successful outside of the contemporary aesthetic mainstream;
- 2 to 3 projects in the field, in which we utilize the 'stories' of the life artists we encounter and their respective life 'works' on their own life stages as an opportunity to engage in small, on-site collaborations.
- Text studies: see Seminar Life Artists – Life Art
