As part of the "Celebrate Life!" project prominent figures from the realms of art and culture were invited to engage in a dialog in aid of the Caritas Hospice: What remains of us when we have gone? What is important to us knowing that life is finite? What traces do we leave? How do I wish to die? Barbara Coudenhove-Kalergi, Christiane Horbiger, Karl Markovics, Robert Menasse, Cornelius Obonya, Arnulf Rainer, Barbara Stockl, Michael Landau, and Josef Zotter all agreed to have a "life mask" made of their faces. Subsequently, renowned international artists Daniel Knorr, Erik van Lieshout, Teresa Margolles, Arnulf Rainer, Hans Schabus, Hubert Scheibl, Deborah Sengl, Daniel Spoerri, Kader Attia, and Nives Widauer put their artistic touches to the masks. The book documents the one-off exhibition of the masks in the of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna. Antiques Collection.
