The exhibition Soft Machine by Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl at Phileas in Vienna takes place on the occasion of their current show at the Austrian Pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition La biennale di Venezia.
For the first time, Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl join Phileas to expand the Austrian Pavilion in Venice with a side show in Vienna. Phileas is an independent philanthropic organization and important partner for the realization of the exhibitions in the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. The first show in the Phileas exhibition space will feature parts of the installation "Soft Machine" by Ashley Hans Scheirl and Jakob Lena Knebl from Venice. In addition, the artists will share this stage with their students from the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. The Transmedia Arts department of Jakob Lena Knebl will start with two exhibitions in which all students will take part in turn, in the spirit of the collaborative approach that the artists have chosen for their project in Venice.
A rich and lively program of public events, ranging from a film screening, the presentation of the Biennale Magazine and a panel discussion to a concert, will accompany the exhibition.
