15 June 2014 to 15 June 2015
With his art installation The Perfect Tourist, Hubertus von Hohenlohe invites both Viennese citizens and tourists to capture the magic of Belvedere Palace in a perfect photograph. Frequently tourists concentrate on collecting photographs or on handling digital devices, while reality moves out of focus. However, those unaware of their surroundings will not be capable of reproducing the spirit of a particular place in a photograph. This is why the one-year project The Perfect Tourist, starting on 15 June 2014, offers visitors to the Belvedere Gardens an opportunity to immortalise themselves in the Baroque ambience of the Lower and the Upper Belvedere with the aid of a specially designed mirror. Once the perfect picture has been taken, the perfect tourist can put the camera away and enjoy the beauty and power of the moment.
“This installation must be understood as creative linkage that contributes to freezing memories. It enables people to take pictures of themselves against the backdrop of this wonderful ensemble, which is unique in terms of both architecture and culture. In other words, it helps tourists from around the globe to shoot the perfect photograph”, Hubertus von Hohenlohe explains his concept.
