Belvedere Klimt-App: A New Horizon of Perception and Plenty of "Moving Images"
Klimt and his masterpieces are conveyed to the spectator through an entirely unprecedented interdisciplinary approach. As soon as visitors approach the respective paintings, the app installed on their iPads will easily establish correlations with the topography of Klimt’s travel destinations and allow them to spatially experience his personal living quarters and the buildings where or for which he created works of art.
To each visitor and everyone interested in Klimt, the Google-Maps-based geomedia “Gustav Klimt
World Map” is made available for download via the iTunes Store as a crucial aid. This ensures an
entirely new and continuous experience of the exhibition that goes far beyond the visit to the
museum and exhibition as such.

Thanks to short films supplied by the app, visitors have the unique opportunity of viewing the works of art in the context of the places where they were created. The villas and houses on Attersee inhabited by Klimt, as well as selected buildings and room segments in his native town of Vienna, including the family’s apartments in Burggasse and Westbahnstraße, are thus made accessible.
On the occasion of the JUBILEE EXHIBITION 150 years of Gustav Klimt we interviewed our visitors for one week to "Klimt is for me ...". In addition to the museum visitors from around the world, we got grandchildren and relatives of the famous painter and Agnes Husslein-Arco, director of the Belvedere and Alfred Weidinger, vice director and curator of the exhibition in front of the camera.
