On September 26, 2013 the Ovalhalle at the MuseumsQuartier will play host to Viennese artist Alex Kiessling (www.alexkiessling.com) as he creates three artworks simultaneously in three different countries.
With the help of satellite transmissions, two industrial robots – one on a stage on Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz and the other next to Nelson’s Column on Trafalgar Square in London – will mirror Kiessling’s movements in real time.
Spectators in the German and British capitals can follow the artist in Vienna courtesy of giant screens. Live streams will also keep the audience in Vienna up to date with events in Berlin and London.
Find out all about Long Distance Art for yourself – in Vienna, Berlin or London.
