fressen und gefressen werden [what's in my head #6] / 2009
Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, as part of the exhibtion "Eating the Universe - Food in art" / Düsseldorf, germany / 2009 / 30 minutes

Similar to a collage I combine various small actions to one image: i attach cardboard pieces to the wall in the shape of a house; i create a semi-circle on the floor by moving and snorting flour from my mouth and over my hands; i spread red chili powder over my feet; with long plaster-stripes i tape my feet to the ground; i draw a white waistcoat on the brown shirt that i wear; on the left side of my chest with my hand i am pounding the the rhythm of my heart; i take off my brown shirt and reveal the white one that i wear underneath; from the cardboard i am cutting out a gun that i point at the audience and that after a while i start chewing on and eating it completely; i burn a couple of holes into the white shirt; i arrange plates on this semi-circle and on each plate i pile up black soil; i stick several forks into each pile; i try to set them aflame; i run and smash into the wall at the spot where the cardboard house is at; i cover my head with white cream; i tear the letters E-G-O from cardboard; i open my shirt and with two forks i scratch a "sun" around my bellybutton; i spill black liquid from my mouth while smiling; i throw noodle-letters at the audience; i stick forks into a radish and attach a string to it; i blow petals into the audience; finally i leave the place taking the radish along

Eating the universe. Food in art. [Curator: Magdalena Holzhey]
Eat Art, a term invented by Daniel Spoerri for art made with and involving food, has its institutionalized origins in Düsseldorf. In 1970, Spoerri founded the Eat Art Gallery alongside the Burgplatz and inspired numerous artists to produce various editions made of edible materials and food wastes. Based on the former activities of the gallery, the exhibition in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf takes generous stock of the phenomena from today's perspective and traces the original character of eat art from its origins until today. "Eating the Universe" is a title first created in the 1970's by Peter Kubelka, former professor for Film and Cooking at the Frankfurt Städelschule, for a TV-show on cooking as an artistic genre. It demonstrates the ongoing interest of artists even today in the subject of food as an elementary substance. As a fundamental interface of art and life, food remains a central topic, especially against the backdrop of issues such as affluence and hunger, the anti-consumerism and anti-globalization movements, modern dietetics and cooking shows, health crazes and fast food. ...

Eating the universe. Vom Essen in der Kunst. [Curator: Magdalena Holzhey]
Eat Art, 1970 von Daniel Spoerri als Bezeichnung für Kunst mit und aus Essbarem geprägt, hat in institutionalisierter Form ihren Ursprung in Düsseldorf. Zwei Jahre nach Eröffnung seines Restaurants am Burgplatz gründete der Schweizer 1970 dort die Eat Art Galerie, für die zahlreiche Künstler Editionen aus essbaren Materialien und Lebensmittelabfällen produzierten. Die Ausstellung „Eating the Universe“ — ein Titel, den Peter Kubelka, ehemals Professor für Film und Kochen an der Frankfurter Städelschule, in den 1970er Jahren für eine TV-Sendung über das Kochen als Kunstgattung erfand — verfolgt mit einer breit angelegten Bestandsaufnahme aus heutiger Sicht Themen der Eat Art bis in die Gegenwart. Sie zeigt, wie relevant der künstlerische Umgang mit der Grundsubstanz Nahrung als elementare Schnittstelle von Kunst und Leben bis heute geblieben ist und vor dem Hintergrund von Themen wie Überfluss und Hunger, Konsum- und Globalisierungskritik, moderne Ernährungslehren und Koch-Shows, Gesundheitswahn und Fast Food eine neue Aktualität bekommt. ...

Similar to a collage I combine various small actions to one image: i attach cardboard pieces to the wall in the shape of a house; i create a semi-circle on the floor by moving and snorting flour from my mouth and over my hands; i spread red chili powder over my feet; with long plaster-stripes i tape my feet to the ground; i draw a white waistcoat on the brown shirt that i wear; on the left side of my chest with my hand i am pounding the the rhythm of my heart; i take off my brown shirt and reveal the white one that i wear underneath; from the cardboard i am cutting out a gun that i point at the audience and that after a while i start chewing on and eating it completely; i burn a couple of holes into the white shirt; i arrange plates on this semi-circle and on each plate i pile up black soil; i stick several forks into each pile; i try to set them aflame; i run and smash into the wall at the spot where the cardboard house is at; i cover my head with white cream; i tear the letters E-G-O from cardboard; i open my shirt and with two forks i scratch a "sun" around my bellybutton; i spill black liquid from my mouth while smiling; i throw noodle-letters at the audience; i stick forks into a radish and attach a string to it; i blow petals into the audience; finally i leave the place taking the radish along

Eating the universe. Food in art. [Curator: Magdalena Holzhey]
Eat Art, a term invented by Daniel Spoerri for art made with and involving food, has its institutionalized origins in Düsseldorf. In 1970, Spoerri founded the Eat Art Gallery alongside the Burgplatz and inspired numerous artists to produce various editions made of edible materials and food wastes. Based on the former activities of the gallery, the exhibition in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf takes generous stock of the phenomena from today's perspective and traces the original character of eat art from its origins until today. "Eating the Universe" is a title first created in the 1970's by Peter Kubelka, former professor for Film and Cooking at the Frankfurt Städelschule, for a TV-show on cooking as an artistic genre. It demonstrates the ongoing interest of artists even today in the subject of food as an elementary substance. As a fundamental interface of art and life, food remains a central topic, especially against the backdrop of issues such as affluence and hunger, the anti-consumerism and anti-globalization movements, modern dietetics and cooking shows, health crazes and fast food. ...

Eat Art, 1970 von Daniel Spoerri als Bezeichnung für Kunst mit und aus Essbarem geprägt, hat in institutionalisierter Form ihren Ursprung in Düsseldorf. Zwei Jahre nach Eröffnung seines Restaurants am Burgplatz gründete der Schweizer 1970 dort die Eat Art Galerie, für die zahlreiche Künstler Editionen aus essbaren Materialien und Lebensmittelabfällen produzierten. Die Ausstellung „Eating the Universe“ — ein Titel, den Peter Kubelka, ehemals Professor für Film und Kochen an der Frankfurter Städelschule, in den 1970er Jahren für eine TV-Sendung über das Kochen als Kunstgattung erfand — verfolgt mit einer breit angelegten Bestandsaufnahme aus heutiger Sicht Themen der Eat Art bis in die Gegenwart.

Eating the universe. Vom Essen in der Kunst. [Curator: Magdalena Holzhey]
Eat Art, 1970 von Daniel Spoerri als Bezeichnung für Kunst mit und aus Essbarem geprägt, hat in institutionalisierter Form ihren Ursprung in Düsseldorf. Zwei Jahre nach Eröffnung seines Restaurants am Burgplatz gründete der Schweizer 1970 dort die Eat Art Galerie, für die zahlreiche Künstler Editionen aus essbaren Materialien und Lebensmittelabfällen produzierten. Die Ausstellung „Eating the Universe“ — ein Titel, den Peter Kubelka, ehemals Professor für Film und Kochen an der Frankfurter Städelschule, in den 1970er Jahren für eine TV-Sendung über das Kochen als Kunstgattung erfand — verfolgt mit einer breit angelegten Bestandsaufnahme aus heutiger Sicht Themen der Eat Art bis in die Gegenwart. Sie zeigt, wie relevant der künstlerische Umgang mit der Grundsubstanz Nahrung als elementare Schnittstelle von Kunst und Leben bis heute geblieben ist und vor dem Hintergrund von Themen wie Überfluss und Hunger, Konsum- und Globalisierungskritik, moderne Ernährungslehren und Koch-Shows, Gesundheitswahn und Fast Food eine neue Aktualität bekommt. ...

fressen und gefressen werden [what's in my head #6] / 2009
Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, as part of the exhibtion "Eating the Universe - Food in art" / Düsseldorf, germany / 2009 / 30 minutes

Similar to a collage I combine various small actions to one image: i attach cardboard pieces to the wall in the shape of a house; i create a semi-circle on the floor by moving and snorting flour from my mouth and over my hands; i spread red chili powder over my feet; with long plaster-stripes i tape my feet to the ground; i draw a white waistcoat on the brown shirt that i wear; on the left side of my chest with my hand i am pounding the the rhythm of my heart; i take off my brown shirt and reveal the white one that i wear underneath; from the cardboard i am cutting out a gun that i point at the audience and that after a while i start chewing on and eating it completely; i burn a couple of holes into the white shirt; i arrange plates on this semi-circle and on each plate i pile up black soil; i stick several forks into each pile; i try to set them aflame; i run and smash into the wall at the spot where the cardboard house is at; i cover my head with white cream; i tear the letters E-G-O from cardboard; i open my shirt and with two forks i scratch a "sun" around my bellybutton; i spill black liquid from my mouth while smiling; i throw noodle-letters at the audience; i stick forks into a radish and attach a string to it; i blow petals into the audience; finally i leave the place taking the radish along

Eating the universe. Food in art. [Curator: Magdalena Holzhey]
Eat Art, a term invented by Daniel Spoerri for art made with and involving food, has its institutionalized origins in Düsseldorf. In 1970, Spoerri founded the Eat Art Gallery alongside the Burgplatz and inspired numerous artists to produce various editions made of edible materials and food wastes. Based on the former activities of the gallery, the exhibition in the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf takes generous stock of the phenomena from today's perspective and traces the original character of eat art from its origins until today. "Eating the Universe" is a title first created in the 1970's by Peter Kubelka, former professor for Film and Cooking at the Frankfurt Städelschule, for a TV-show on cooking as an artistic genre. It demonstrates the ongoing interest of artists even today in the subject of food as an elementary substance. As a fundamental interface of art and life, food remains a central topic, especially against the backdrop of issues such as affluence and hunger, the anti-consumerism and anti-globalization movements, modern dietetics and cooking shows, health crazes and fast food. ...
