Description

The Ausseerland and the partly inaccessible landscape in the Austrian Totes Gebirge look back on a checkered political history. A great number of activities both supporting and opposing Hitler's fascism were focused there in the mid-1940s. The year 2015 sees the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of Europe from Nazi totalitarianism. Only few witnesses of these past events are still alive at this time. Many events are known, many interpretations contested, but an encounter with contemporary art that focuses on historic sites in the landscape, and decides to interpret these sites differently, is unprecedented. Six art projects in the landscape work with this individual and collective memory - from Clegg & Guttmann, Eva Grubinger, Florian Huttner, Angelika Loderer, Susan Philipsz, and Bojan Sarcevic. Published on the occasion of the eponymous group project and exhibition, this book is intended to serve as a walking guide and to give the reader insights concerning the historical background of the projects.
