As a highlight of his exhibition “When I took my finger out of the feathered bottom, it smelled insanely good, like fresh clay.” presented inside and outside of the Künstlerhaus, the artist Heribert Friedl will present a sound performance. Friedl is renowned for works refusing to address the visual sense for which he coined the term "nonvisualobjects." The record label for interpretations in minimal music (reduction) he co-founded with Rapahel Moser in Vienna in 2005, is called "nvo | nonvisualobjects."
