A minute from ANNA WITTs video The Rights of the Pavement currently on view for the group exhibition Space for Kids. A Dream City @kunsthallewien@annamargarethawitt
Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier, Vienna
July 2 - September 2, 2018
In The Rights of the Pavement the artist examines public forms of expression in our civil society. On view are visual forms of protest and their relation to judicial regulations. The video work shows found footage of political and artistic actions. In a voice-over one can hear an Austrian police press officer commenting on each situation. He explains the criminal delinquency and possible juristic consequences. Regulations for the sidewalk and consequently for the public space come increasingly to the fore.
