Beginning in 2012, audio-visual art has been presented for the first time as an area of applied arts at MAK in the context
of a cooperation with the sound:frame festival. Since its inception in 2006, sound:frame has considered itself as a platform
that enables current artistic trends to be heard. The festival is supposed to be a meeting point to facilitate the international
communication of audio:visual artists from all around the world, making artistic, formal, and content-wise innovations possible.
Intercreativity and the team play of different art forms are at the core of the festival and its very thoughts, beliefs, and
intentions. The collaboration will continue in 2013 with the exhibition The House of Drift and a MAK NITE Special event in the framework of the sound:frame festival.
Within the scope of the sound:frame exhibition Depart, Gerald Moser and Christina Simmel, Andreas Waldschütz, the performance
group around Sebastijan Geč and the fashion designer Lisi Lang will collectively work on creating a large-scale audiovisual
installation. Opening with a live performance on April 4, the installation will than be on display at the MAK exhibition hall.
