Vienna Design Week 2017 – Panzerschrank Potemkin

When strongrooms are pensioned off, they quite often dream of the cinema – and of the days when break-ins were physical actions, gold bars and bundles of banknotes were real, and hermetically sealed rooms devised by master designers were able to play leading roles alongside the stars for one whole act – certainly a better and more exciting fate than a bare existence in the cellar of an abandoned bank.
Film director and multimedia artist Virgil Widrich transforms the strongroom of the former branch of the Zentralsparkasse at Sparkassaplatz 4 into a
surface for projections.
