Following an invitation of Galeria Museo in Bolzano, the Graz-based Kunstverein Medienturm presents the exhibition ABSTRACTS OF SYN. The linkage of audio and video towards an affective spatial experience becomes increasingly prominent in contemporary art. With 20 commissioned works, Kunstverein Medienturm presents a younger generation of artists, who, in this field and in an international context, increasingly become important. In the selected works, one can detect a discussion of an abstract image understanding; a rather post-minimalist visualization meets a reduced sound, in order to concentrate to complex, synaesthetic audio-visions.

Beside the presentation of all video works, new pieces by Tomas Eller (Merano), Nicolas Jasmin (Toulouse) and Axel Stockburger (Munich) are shown, whereas the latter give an audio-visual performance on the occasion of the opening.
Almost all video works are distributed in small numbers via the EDITION MEDIENTURM, which is committed to the spreading of experimental video art on the basis of limited artists’ donations. The catalogues ABSTRACTS OF SYN. Edition Medienturm and _07.Tomas Eller accompany the exhibition by means of text and images (Verlag Folio, Bolzano/Vienna).
