Carsten Höller’s 2008 exhibition Carrousel at Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria featured five interrelated works of the internationally renowned artist: the huge carrousel R B Ride (2007), the light space Light Room, the optically divided Half Mirror Room, the revolving hotel room Drehendes Hotelzimmer, and the projection Fliegende Stadt (showing a transparent construction based upon Russian architect Georgi Krutikow’s 1928 thesis, whose utopian vision was of a flying city, where people would live and work, returning to earth only for recreation). This is a remastered and re-edited version of VernissageTV’s original documentation of the opening of the exhibition as part of VernissageTV’s Classics series.
Our series r3 highlights the treasures of VernissageTV’s huge archive. R3 is a series of VernissageTV classics, now re-mastered, re-edited and reissued in High Definition. Click here for the complete list of videos. Click here for the original post.
