Abstract (English)

" For many years now, Helke Bayrle—a film maker based in Frankfurt am Main—has documented the activities of the Portikus. The result is a unique collection of artist portraits. Portikus Under Construction presents the last decade, edited backstage material that the viewer of the finished exhibitions never sees. Some of the artists really like talking about what they do and about the significance of what they present, others prefer to simply work with the installation team and the curator. Helke Bayrle’s unique material is very large and represents an important archive of contemporary exhibition making. These three discs present an edited version of the artist portraits. They give us a glimpse of each artist’s work at the Portikus, and at the same time they offer a unique behind the scenes view of the activities at one of Europe’s most lively experimental art institutions.
