CONZEPT: Marion Piffer-Damiani
Commissioned by steirischer herbst, p.t.t.red – paint the town red, Stefan Micheel and Hans Winkler, artists’ duo with declared tendency towards subversive intervention – tour as journalists through Graz in early Summer 2000, intending to look into the local art and gallery scene. Target is to outline an image of this Grazbased scene, which is presented on the occasion of the art fair “Art Forum Berlin” in September 2000.
As outcome of their official journey to Styria, p.t.t.red finally conceive a type of “Blue Box” for the Berlinbased art fair, comprising four monitors which show four different
“views”of Graz, four images about art, the prison, the slaughter house and the cityscape. Four themes in the range of outside and inside are transferred in the form of four parallel live transmissions via Internet from Graz to Berlin: 3 x real time “tele-visions” beside a cinematic notepad on the local encounters in the galleries and art institutions.
