Ciphers of Regression
Summer 2019 – Painting Department, Angewandte, Vienna
"Ciphers of Regression" (June 25 to 28, 2019) was a project by the Painting Department in collaboration with the Collection of the University of Applied Arts Vienna. It consisted of an auction (June 25, 2019) conducted by Marei Buhmann and Sofie Fatouretchi; musical interludes by Jutta Maris & Reena King, Angst, Die Süsen Mäuse, and In My Talons; an adaption of the exhibition "Der Hausfreund," previously on view at Heiligenkreuzer Hof (May 2 to June 1, 2019); and an exhibition of hoodies. Pairs of hoodies were reworked, of which auction attendees acquired one. The counterpart was donated to the university’s collection.
