Nora Ruzsics & Emmerich Weissenberger
Exhibition & Residency:
April 1 – May 30, 2015
SIGNALS are artworks that are being created during this journey and will be brought to Austria and other countries as the ART EMBASSY, a documentary film recorded of the journey. It is important to the artists, that current messages will be constantly brought to cooperating partners in Austria and Europe during the journey by communicating with fixed cooperating organizations, via radio broadcasts (interviews, reports etc.) and an online blog to bring the messages to the people. The journey, which is being conducted like a pilgrimage, ends in Los Angeles in May 2015 with the art exhibition SIGNALS, representing the spirit of equality, freedom and brotherhood.
