The Lehar Theatre In Bad Ischl hosts a physical exhibition showcasing works of students from the master’s semester studio (University of Innsbruck) & the artist in residence at AUF! AUF! Residency. The exhibition comprises of Virtual Reality experiences, interactive projection mapping projects, a silent disco & interactive sculptures.

University Students: Steven Mark Kübler, Matthias Holzmann, Sara Schlierenzauer, Valentin Goham, Linus Birkendahl, Bernd Baumgartner, Daniel Kreuzsaler. Tutors: Anirudhan Iyengar, Clemens Plank & Judith Prossliner.

The central theme of the studio is elements and objects in the theatre. It addresses questions such as how objects are experienced, what needs they answer other than functional ones, what mental structures are interwoven with and contradict their functional structures, or what cultural, intracultural, or transcultural system underpins their directly experienced everydayness. We shall not, therefore, be concerning ourselves with objects as defined by their functions or by the categories into which they might be subdivided for analytic purposes, but instead with the processes whereby people relate to them, their relevance in the perception of space and architecture, and with the systems of human behavior and relationships that result from them (Baudrillard, 1996). The studio will study the relationship between objects, of the objects and space (wholes), and of the boundaries between the objects through the aspect of identity, representation, and meaning in the context of the theatre. They will offer a critical interpretation of the spatial ornaments and objects, the literal and metaphorical perception of the historical theatrical space.
