In's Offene! Performance and Talk with Karlheinz Essl. (As part of the seminar „Die Frage nach dem Schönen“)

When: 2 April 2023, 18:30

Where: University of Vienna, Main Building, Sitzungssaal des Dekanats

Whether it is the examination of the work of art as an open work (Umberto Eco), or the necessity of constantly reflecting on and reinventing one's own work as a composer and performer, Hölderlin's invitation "Come! Into the Open!" is a leitmotif of Karlheinz Essl. In his work, he combines music with other art forms such as poetry, painting and dance, seeks to give artistic expression to new technical achievements (cf. project K.O.P.F.) and, above all, engages in an open-ended outcome of the artistic process, in which composition, performance and improvisation merge.

On April 24, 2023, we are pleased to welcome Karlheinz Essl as a guest in the seminar "The Question of the Beautiful." A sound performance by Coastlines will provide insight into his current work and interact with a conversation about current and fundamental questions of aesthetics.
