Abstract (English)

"At the Kunsthaus Bregenz, gelitin will be building various works with its own hands. On the ground floor, for example, the artists will be constructing a public restroom complete with balcony in the KUB Arena; this zone is open to the public free of charge. While the first floor will house a classic exhibition of large-format paintings by gelitin, the second floor will be converted into a movie theater with several projection rooms: the main attraction will, of course, be a movie by gelitin. Finally, a fusion reactor will be on display on the third floor.
From time to time, one might fi nd a handrail made of hotdogs because as gelitin comments: “We live for surprises in details.”
gelitin brings together all their basic strategies in the exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, the first large-scale museum exhibition the group has ever done. The interweaving of architectural sculptural elements and the body- and pleasure-oriented Dadaist exchange between artists, art, and audience demonstrates a consistent, anarchistic idealism of what gelitin stands for: art itself. And that in a most perceptible way, in the knowledge that all materials, content, and actions can be transformed and that in doing so the “art place, concept of genius, and traditional positions of artistic creation” (Elisabeth Schweeger) are cancelled out." -- publisher's website.
