From Goethe Institut:

It’s a kind theater, or an exhibition in which the exhibits are not pieces of artwork but the artists themselves – caught in a moment of their realities.

In this series, the artist is exploring possibilities for combining video installation with performance art and experimental theater, and for possibilities of preserving differences of individuals while creating a sense of collective experience.

Live Performance

For 3 days, a number of artists will rotate in presenting themselves as exhibits. The exhibition will change from hour to hour depending on the number of and which artists will be there at each hour.
