A 35mm reflexive deconstruction of the main exhibition hall of the Vienna Secession using nineteen specially designed cameras to kinetically record its space and architecture, Main Hall adds a purely cinematographic gesture to the history of this formidable White Cube.

Playing as part of Wavelengths 3: Farther Than the Eye Can See

A different stroboscopic effect is achieved in Philipp Fleischmann's Main Hall, which uses nineteen specially designed cameras to record the space inside the main exhibition hall of the Vienna Secession. While this bastion of modernity has been crucial to the development of Minimalism and Conceptual Art, film has eluded its mandate; Main Hall adds a purely cinematographic gesture (à la Gordon Matta-Clark) to the space's history by having it look at its own architecture.
