The question of how architecture works in everyday life and as a social space has long been the central concern in Heidrun Holzfeind’s films, photographs, and sculptures. Her art questions immanent architectural and social utopias and probes the boundaries between history and identity, between individual stories and the political narratives of the present.

At the Secession, Holzfeind is showing a new video installation about the Japanese shamanic improvisation duo IRO (Toshio and Shizuko Orimo). For the couple, their musical experimentation goes hand in hand with their activist involvement in the peace and anti-nuclear movement and a free-spirited way of life; they espouse an animist and pantheist weltanschauung and vehemently oppose modernity and commercialism in all its forms. Holzfeind interlaces their music and philosophy with the ideas set in stone in Takamasa Yosizaka’s Inter-University Seminar House (1965) in Hachioji, Tokyo.
