Rirkrit Tiravanija: Secession


Member Price
Rirkrit Tiravanija: Secession documents architect Rirkrit Tiravanija’s project for the Secession in Vienna, Austria that was on display from July 5 to September 1, 2002. The design was based on Rudolf Schindler’s house in Los Angeles and the visions behind it, which are significant not only for architecture, but also for art.

Rirkrit Tiravanija installed a reconstruction of the studio tract of the Schindler House in the main room of the Secession and used this as a stage for various activities. His interest focused less on a faithful architectural facsimile than on “animating” Rudolf Schindler’s world of ideas, his concept of inside and outside in relation to the conditions of private and public spaces. To this Tiravanija added his own ideas on relationships and communities, his characteristic conception of art as an investigation and implementation of “living well”.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the installation was used as a venue for a multimedia program offered by Tiravanija and various guests, with features such as film screenings, concerts, presentations and lectures.

By Phillippe Pareno, Andreas Spiegl, Matthias Herrmann, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
