MuKaTo Project Karoline Riha Muzak Thomas Renoldner

MuKaTo Karoline Riha Muzak &Thomas Renoldner

Initiated 2008 by Muzak, Karoline Riha and Thomas Renoldner.

Ongoing Filmproject in collaboration with other artists, filmmakers, contemporary composer,s musicians and various communities.

Strategies of image production are investigated through reinvention and restructuring imagery apart from art historical, theoretical and pop-cultural constraints. Resulting works are shown, nationally and internationally, within exhibition and festival context.
Process and product are of equal value. The projects offer a platform for ideas on the basis of personal experiences, where borders between producer and viewer, authorship, artist and spectator are crossed over, and the media functions as navigator of ideas.
