Paul Pibernig


Stills – Self-published, 96 Pages, Softcover, 2017

In 2016, Paul Pibernig accompanied the Diagonale for the first time and captured the dense festival activity in photographs that bear the personal gaze and the working methods of the artist:
“With his analogue camera, Paul Pibernig moves against the rhythm of the festival, he lingers where others have long moved on, captures what is lost in the hustle and bustle, and in the documentary gaze, registers the poetry of the festival. His analogue images are not mere commemorative vignettes of the most beautiful Diagonale moments, but instead, individual details that unlock anew with every viewing and as synopses, unfold to stories, along which one can move through the Diagonale once again after the concrete, exceptional circumstance of the festival has long passed.”
