Statement by Eva Schlegel

Eroticism in the public space, a joint project with museum in progress – known for its large-scale cooperations in digital, immaterial and other spaces – was a lot of fun. The project on Karlsplatz above Wein & Co was a follow-up to my initial acquaintanceship with Joseph Ortner, whom I met in the BAR in Sonnenfelsgasse, probably the most important establishment for young artists in the 1980s, which he was running with Kathrin Messner, before they founded museum in progress. Now I am also associated with one world foundation, a further sustained and philanthropic project set up by them.
