Peter Weibel

Medienrebell – Warning! This exposition can change your life.

17 October 2014 to 18 January 2015
Belvedere 21Belvedere
This year, media artist, actor, theorist, musician and museum director Peter Weibel, who in the 1960s and 1970s ranked among Austria’s ‘rebels’, was awarded the Oskar Kokoschka Prize 2014 for his artistic œuvre.
His outstanding work is marked by such thematic fields as the mechanisms of perception and thinking, the autonomous realm of apparatuses, the crisis of representation, imagery, and the museum, the relationship between art, politics, and economy, and the conditions of the art market’s operational system. The display in the exhibition at the 21er Haus conveys to the beholder the individual chapters of Weibel’s œuvre – an orbis sensualium pictus, so to speak.
