Maciej Toporowicz presents installation of twelve video projections based on twelve tone music by Arnold Schoenberg. In this method of creating music, all twelve tones are regarded as equal. All 12 notes are thus given equal importance. The atonal music is not only a way of composing music but also a vision of world and universe, where human being has a limited control of environment. The artist has also recorded short piano pieces by Arnold Schoenberg using electronic instruments and computers.

Maciej Toporowicz is a multi-media artist based in NYC known for his radical re-interpretations of art and advertisement, mostly Obsession, Lure. Shiseido, and others. His work was previously presented at Wyspa in a group exhibition „On Tectonic of History“ and the number of his works was screened as a part of Museum Night in in 2007.

„Schoeneberg!“ is part of Inter-Coastal, a project realized in cooperation with 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica and financed from the means of Trust for Mutual Understanding in NYC.
