“Why that?” During Zaunbewegung, Vienna-based artist Angelika Wischermann moves a construction fence, link by link, through the landscape by removing the back piece of the fence and adding it to the front piece. The fence makes its way along the Obertrumer See, through fields and meadows, past houses and streets. Residents and festival guests can observe this construction and movement process for ten days when they watch the artist at work.
