Helmut and Johanna Kandl, Your Way to the Top, 2001, Worlds of Work, museum in progress, Der Standard, 11-06-2001, p. 17, newspaper multiple
The project in public space "Your Way to the Top" takes as its theme the world of work. The artists have chosen various subjects from an extensive educational archive of coloured glass negatives from between the wars and combined these with quotes from the world of business today. The results are images which raise the question of social conditions in the 21st century in a surprisingly new way. (Brigitte Huck)
The works by Helmut and Johanna Kandl could be seen in public space from 11-06 until 31-08-2001, in the media of poster and Citylights (1040 Wien, Prinz Eugenstrasse 20–22 and Plößlgasse 13) on Infoscreens and in the daily newspaper DER STANDARD. A museum in progress project in cooperation with the Vienna Chamber of Labour.
