Atelier Gespräche [Studio conversations]

Publisher: Sabine Coelsch-Foisner

The "Studio Conversations" are public events held by the University in the glass-roofed inner courtyard of the KunstQuartier [arts centre]. They have achieved special status in Salzburg as a forum for creative artists, researchers, people involved in the cultural sector, and distinguished personalities, creating links between the academic world and artistic practice.

This book presents a survey of the first "Studio Conversations" since 2009, copiously illustrated and containing personal statements, interviews and essays. It provides an entertainingly presented kaleidoscope of well-founded aesthetic processes, offering the reader insights into the inexhaustible variety of the arts – narration through language and music, representation in real and virtual space, body art, modern media, illustration and alienation of reality, and experimentation with the perception of the reader, viewer or listener.

Subjects include the conductor Ivor Bolton, the Welsh National Opera, the poetic drama of Tennessee Williams (marking the 100th anniversary of his birth), Thomas Oberender, drama director of the Salzburg Festival, prize-winning musician Friedrich Cerha and slam poet Saul Williams, the African writer and concept artist Samson Kambalu, portraits of Irene Andessner and costume-designers Marie-Louise Strandt and Dorothea Nicolai, Frank Günther, award-winning translator of Shakespeare, and the hitherto under-represented documentary photography of Gerti Deutsch.
