Artist in Residence in June/July: Viktor Kótun
Viktor Kótun from Hungary is the new Artist-in-Residence at the quartier 21/ MuseumsQuartier in Vienna.
The artist’s statement about his intentions for the residency: “In Vienna I want to organize a workshop continuing the multiple archivist project through introducing the historical context of the plagiarists, avantgardists, the history of our shows, introducing some selected multiples and actions, understanding both through the history/theory and the actual action of reproducing it. Through this process the participants realize the difference made by the real action marking the disadvantages of pure conceptualism. The participants are fostered to come up with their own ideas of multiple recipes or action concepts.”
Viktor Kótun was born 1984 in Budapest. After finishing his MA in communication theory he is now working on his thesis at the DLA department at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Budapest.
