Jenny Holzer has developed an augmented-reality application with the London-based digital agency Holition that transforms Bourgeois’s pivotal work, Destruction of the Father (1974), on view in the Kunstmuseum Basel | Neubau, into an immersive, multisensory experience.

The app will further allow users to see Bourgeois’s words float around them wherever they go, and create and share their own AR images.

The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store (iphone) and the Google Play Store (android).
