Steinbrener/Dempf – DELETE!

 

 

Delettering the public space

Summer 2005, a street of houses in Vienna’s 7th district – For a period of two weeks all advertising signs, slogans, pictograms, company names and logos will disappear. The fabric of signs and signals so characteristic of our cities, which normally fills the space between the architectural structures and the urban movement flows, is eliminated, and the public space is ‘delettered’. Thanks to the Delete! art project, the commercial street falls silent, as it were: the unequivocal, biunique messages are deleted to make room for an unpredictable openness, a baffling virtuality.
