Take a multi-sensory journey through the golden, sensuous and revolutionary art of the Viennese painter Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. Be immersed in his iconic works, projected on marble walls, towering columns, stained glass skylights and coved ceilings of a historic former bank using unique, cutting-edge mapping technology, synchronized to an original soundtrack.
The first exhibit of a new permanent digital art center. Only two rooms, but also includes shorter, complementary digital experiences: Friedensreich Hundertwasser: In the Wake of the Vienna Secession featuring a successor of Klimt, 5 Movements following five dancers across five musical movements and Recoding Entropia, an immersive film experience reflecting on the vastness of the mind’s possibilities.
The experience lasts about one hour; guests can stay as long as they like.
