Dorit Margreiter, Short Hills (2000)

mumok live

Artist Dorit Margreiter talks about her work Short Hills (2000) in the exhibition The Limits of Our World curated by Matthias Michalka as part of the collection exhibition Enjoy – the mumok Collection in Change. On a simple wooden scaffold based on Friedrich Kiesler’s Leger und Träger hanging system for museums and galleries, a model landscape, along with television monitors and video projections, a photograph, and an architectural blueprint are arranged as if for an experiment. The installation refers to Dorit Margreiter's Chinese-born relatives who live in the US suburb of Short Hills.
