    Tony Conrad

    Two Degrees of Separation / Über zwei Ecken

    Gareth Long and Nicolaus Schafhausen

    Tony Conrad, who can be described as an artist, composer, musician, filmmaker, and performer, might be considered the first true “crossover artist.” Two Degrees of Separation accompanies the eponymous exhibition by Tony Conrad at Kunsthalle Wien. In his essay “A Show That's Almost Invisible,” the critic Jonathan Walley discusses how the main works in this exhibition relate to Conrad's interest in the subgenre referred to as the woman-in-prison film, silent music, and the idea of perspective developed during the Italian Renaissance. A conversation between Tony Conrad and Diedrich Diederichsen provides insight into the thinking of the multitalented artist and his unique position in the field of contemporary art.
