Hannes Egger, Visitor Center, 2017

The Visitor Centre features an audio installation in which the artist prompts the visitor to follow his instructions to act around a black seating platform. The outcome is an in-depth reflection on the role of the audience: It intertwines typical attitudes adopted in exhibitions with the history of performance art, the technology of audio guides, the philosophy of Boris Groy and the début of „Offending the Audience“, the play by Peter Handke which premièred in Frankfurt in 1966, to form a whole new pattern of information and personal experiences.
