WWTBD - What Would Thomas Bernhard Do

WWTBD - What Would Thomas Bernhard Do
VIENNA  •  Kunsthalle Vienna  •  Ongoing

The ten-day festival at the Kunsthalle Wien focuses on the central issues of our society, and draws on Thomas Bernhard’s tradition of critical, and sometimes unsettling thinking.

WWTBD – What Would Thomas Bernhard Do features contributions from practitioners in the visual arts, music, literature, art theory, sociology, philosophy, and economics; presents, films, performances, and concerts. Every day from two in the afternoon until two o’clock in the morning, a marathon – one without a pre-determined finish line – unfolds. This is framed around a set by American artist Barbara Kruger; an installation by Austrian artist Heinrich Dunst; and the sound piece "TONSPUR 53" – related to and inspired by both John Cage and Thomas Bernhard's novel "Concrete" – by Austrian artist Robert Schwarz.
