David Horvitz, The Distance of a Day, 2013

20-minute guided tour followed by a lunchtime snack
with Alexandra Baringer

Only a few centimetres separate the two smartphones installed on a wall. However, the videos that are played on their displays show a moment of far greater dimension: namely “the distance of a day”. While artist David Horvitz recorded the sun setting over the Indian Ocean on one side of the globe in 2013, his mother filmed the sun rising over the Pacific Ocean at the exact opposite point of the globe. Only 9 minutes long, the work succeeds in demonstrating the seemingly paradoxical simultaneity of evening and morning. The videos open up elementary questions: how, for example, does our personal point of view – both literally and metaphorically – change our view of the world?

Experience contemporary art in the compact format of a lunch break! The Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung’s Lunch Breaks offer intellectual nourishment and culinary delight at the BlackBox. The foundation’s team provides 20 minutes of insights into the current show on changing artworks and themes. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to exchange ideas over a midday snack – either in the sculpture garden or the BlackBox, depending on the weather. The lunch snack is included in the ticket price.
