Since the 1960s, German installation artist and sculptor Bernhard Leitner (born 1938) has explored the issue of how space can be experienced acoustically and physically, creating immersive sound pieces. This two-volume box set addresses the history of Leitner’s practice and includes sketches, texts and photographs.
Bernhard Leitner (born 1938) uses sound to create intimate spaces in which one can physically experience the movement of sound. He integrates media-based art into his architecture, using exhibition visitors as resonating bodies and playing with their acoustic perceptions. This publication is the first to survey Leitner’s visionary sketchbooks.
