“20 seconds for art” is a design competition of KÖR in cooperation with INFOSCREEN for an artistic spot on the subject of art in Vienna’s public space, to be shown on all INFOSCREEN displays within the city’s network in July and August 2013.

The competition called for soundless twenty-second spots on the subject of art in the city of Vienna’s public space which interpret this theme in an artistic manner. The objective is to make the subject of art in the city of Vienna’s public space accessible to a broad public and make sure the people remember it.
What is art in public space?
What does art in public space trigger?
What is the importance of art in Vienna’s public space?

Each of the selected spots will be shown on the INFOSCREEN displays of the city’s network every seven minutes for a period of two weeks in each case from July to August 2013. Artists were able to choose one or both of the following media: Medium I: 44 screens in the subway stations and/or Medium II: 65 screens in buses and approx. 200 screens in low-floor trams.
From around 150 applications were 6 spots selected.
