Some videos per year are published as limited artists' contribution in the frame of the Edition Medienturm. 25 Experimental Austrian and international artists' videos which discuss the dynamic and manifold relation of image and sound in the field of contemporary media/art are shown. A discussed abstract understanding of the image can be read in most of the selected works; a rather post-minimalist visualization meets a reduced sound, in order to concentrate to complex, synaesthetic audio-visions. The Edition Medienturm intends to transport contemporary video art towards a (potentially new) qualified public.

All editions and a catalogue ABSTRACTS OF SYN are available.

The Publication series Kunstverein Medienturm comprises to date eighteen books, which partly document the program at the exhibition space over the period of currently twelve years. In addition, Kunstverein Medienturm is engaged with the question which different requirements, strategies and finally “forms” catalogues, artist books and readers follow, in order to accompany different artistic projects and procedures as appropriate as possible – and what this can imply for the institution Kunstverein Medienturm and its media-reflexive claim with respect to communication. In order to best meet the individual requirements and strategies of artists as well as exhibitions, currently, different publication formats such as catalogues, readers and artist books are published. The focus is not only on the documentation of the exhibitions, but above all on continuing the artistic idea beyond.
