Opera publica was planed as an
anti-elitist mise en scène and developed as a heterogeneous
tableau of works. The editors Margit Nobis and Clemens Mock present
a book project which combines the interdisciplinary works of 40
contemporary artists with avant-garde texts of 7 authors: experimental
cultural studies, philosophy and "art poetique" create
an Opera publica-in-a-book. "Opera" not in the sense
of a musical stage performance of so-called high culture but as
a narrative figure of thought in publication; "publica"
as a promise of correspondence with the audience: the public.
Invitation to the presentation of the book: Wednesday, 9th of
May 2018, 6:30 p.m., Bildraum07, EG, Burggasse 7-9, 1070 Vienna
