Dorit Margreiter: Methoden der Beschreibung
Dienstag, 25. Juni 2013, 19 Uhr, Aula

Dorit Margreiter *1967, lives in Vienna and is Professor for Video and Videoinstallation at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Vienna since 2006.
For Margreiter, debate about the preservation of late-modernist architecture provides the occasion for probing larger issues shaping our contemporary socio-cultural context: the legacy of the Modernist Movement; the ways that media representations of the built environment inform our collective imaginary; the consequences of the growing interdependence of architecture and spectacle culture.
