At the museum’s invitation, Italian artist Aldo Giannotti uses his conceptual drawings to examine the Albertina’s historically complex structure with its various collections, employees, and visitors in a way that is both performative and installative.

About

Within a group of several interconnected stations, the artist recombines the museum’s various protagonists to create new relational networks, a strategy that has also given rise to an artist’s book with Albertina-related drawings by Giannotti as well as a limited edition of posters relating to the intervention. Furthermore, the floor of the Albertina’s Harriet Hartmann Court will be marked with numerous lines and fields that signify motion and thus highlight the ways in which people use the Court. Additional items connected with this intervention as well as with its conceptually related predecessor at the exhibition venue AR/GE KUNST in Bolzano, Italy are on display in the Albertina’s Hall of the Muses.

The intervention is accompanyed by a new artist book.

With this multi-layered project, Aldo Giannotti breaks with traditions and conventions to develop new spatial, architectural, historical, and social relationships in a way that is humorous and occasionally critical of society and/or institutions.
