Publication Date Nov 2016

For panoramarand, Matthias Klos (b. 1969) walked around the entire city of Salzburg in Austria. The route description for his itinerary was the Umschreibung der Stadtgrenze, i.e., the city limits as set out in the city ordinance. Very much in the tradition of the flneur, Klosa Vienna-based photographerfollowed this written yet imaginary line around Salzburg, keeping to public rights of way the whole time. The idea for the project came from the well-known 19th-century panoramic painting of the city by Johann Michael Sattler. Projected with an idealized 360 perspective, the painting opens up views of the city and its outskirts from a central location on the Festungsberg that was not publicly accessible at the time of painting. In his wanderings along the city limits the artist combines the legislative order of the abstract boundary with the image that the city of Salzburg likes to project of itself.
