Out, out, out into the world — to let it into your mind and then out again in Vienna. In his creative period from 1947 to 1975, the architect Karl Schwanzer built renowned buildings all over the world. Er flog voraus – Karl Schwanzer | Architektenpoem is not only a polyphonic approach to a person; through archive material, animation, documentation, and staging, it also opens the possibility to perceive city and space the way Schwanzer did: in constant interaction with people.
