CLIENT: MUSEUM DER MODERNE

16 JULY TO 30 OCTOBER 2022

The Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents a comprehensive exhibition of the fifty-year oeuvre of the renowned video artist Bill Viola. The exhibition includes a selection of his impressive works, which deal with existential themes such as life, death, transformation and rebirth. Viola combines visionary poetics with cutting-edge technology to create visually powerful works; conventional visual habits are broken. The exhibition focuses on the basic conditions and potentials of human existence, exploring themes such as the human body, orders of time, spirituality and transcendence. Special attention is given to Viola’s video-sound installation “The Raft,” which is a universal metaphor for the threat to human life. The exhibition invites visitors to discover the fascinating works of Bill Viola and to engage with the central questions of human existence.

The museum has commissioned 235 Media with the technical realization of all installations.
