The motto of the xposit format’s exhibition program for 2019 is “Sight and Non-sight.” Playfully drawing on the land art concepts of site and non-site, the presentation includes three graduates from the Academy’s studios Art and Photography, Video and Video Installation, and Art and Digital Media. Robert Smithson understands site as a place existing in the real external world, while non-site describes a work inside that has been transformed from a real place to which it refers. This dialectic relationship between presence and absence reflects not only the concrete spatial circumstances of the presentation that—in line with the xposit format—will be staged in the rooms of the Rector’s Office in Augasse as well as the Academy’s new exhibition space in Eschenbachgasse. As the pun Sight and Non-sight suggests, the interplay between presence and absence ties equally in both with the medium of the exhibition and fundamental image- and media-theoretical considerations regarding photography and media art.
