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.

Of the seven international Guggenheim museums, the Guggenheim Bilbao is the most spectacular. Frank O. Gehry’s famous deconstructivist building is housing the exhibition “Bill Viola: A Retrospective”, which provides a thematic and chronological cross-section of works by one of the most important artists of our time. The retrospective begins with his early single-channel videotapes, including iconic works such as “The Reflecting Pool” (1977–79) and “Four Songs” (1976), where the central themes of Viola’s work were already evident: time and its deconstruction, the exploration of human existence, and experimentation with the media manipulation of images and sounds. Significant works from the 80s, 90s and 2000s trace the development of the large-scale audiovisual masterpieces that brought Bill Viola worldwide renown, and which reveal their full magic in the Guggenheim Bilbao.

Since 2007, 235 MEDIA has been responsible for providing and installing the complex media technology for all of Bill Viola’s major exhibitions in Europe, including the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, and the Grand Palais in Paris.
