The installation is a border wall built from six billion Euros in shredded Euro-Notes, which is equivalent to the amount the EU-Turkey statement, 18 March 2016 to keep refugees from entering the European Union.

The festival opens this Saturday, June 25th and takes place at Kunstraum Teiggi 2.0 in Kriens (Lucerne), CH. The exhibition lasts until July 3rd.

Lots of thanks to the team of “Guck Mal Günther” for inviting me, to Plakatsammlung Basel for the gracious donation of Plexiglass, to Deutsche Bundesbank Freiburg for a lot of Euroconfetti and to all the people who helped grate money-pellets and build the border:

Come see my art: Netzreflexion/Selbstkonstruktion Nov 29 – Dez 12

I was invited by Art van Demon to show my piece “Re-Gram” at their upcoming exhibition Netzreflexion/Selbstkonstruktion. The show opens on the occasion of the 87. Congress of Students of Art History.

The theme of the exhibition is the search for meaning and identity in an interconnected world. It wants to touch on the themes of public vs private, real vs fiction, individual vs society. I am excited to see what the other artists will be showing there.

I will be showing another iteration of my Re-Gram piece. I have printed the last couple of months of my Instagram-feed and will let visitors interact with it in real life. Those interactions may then be photographed and re-instagrammed, creating a feedback loop of on- and offline interactions and recontextualizations.

The Last Record Shop is a show for which different artist designed record covers of imaginary bands and songtitles. My band is called Lorem Ipsum and has its roots in the Monolog-Project which I will be showing at Guck mal, Guenther in Switzerland in two weeks.

Come see my Art – Burnout in Zurich

I will be doing a money-laundering performance on Saturday, Sept. 6th at Museum Baerengasse in Zurich. I will start at 7pm and be doing it all evening.

I will be turning your money into black money (Schwarzgeld) for you to freely use. You will also have the opportunity to apply for black money accounts with several Zurich-based banks.

Please come by and bring your own money to launder/bank.

Below is the English invitation:

Burnout Motel Flyer



The exhibition focuses on the sense/nonsense, functioning/failure of power structures and systems such as the financial system, the performance-oriented society and the art market mechanism. The idea originated from the encounter with the surroundings and the history of the Museum Bärengasse, which is located in the middle of Zurich’s financial district and galleries’ quarter. Only recently the plans to convert the building into a money museum were abandoned. The artists deal with themes such as the market crash in 2008 (Julia Bornefeld), the endemic disease of burnout (Carlo Speranza), the money laundering and black money scandals at financial institutes (Robin Gommel) and the art market’s narrow bottleneck that allows only a handful artists to achieve commercial success (Elena Habicher). Despite the artworks attempt to address the surrounding, the questions focus on how the context influences their meaning. Within the frame of an art museum the headless man wearing a suit by Bornefeld and the money laundry by Gommel might recall the horrendous prices paid for art at auctions as well as the sharp correction of the overheated art market in 2008. The installation by Speranza might remind of how top mangers ended up in burnouts, however, showcased in the context of a museum, this might also make one think of the people working in the cultural field on a self-exploitive level. The visitor himself or herself is eventually given the last contextual dimension, from his and her knowledge and associations, thus the question must be answered individually of what the meaning is actually created by.

OPENING: 6 SEPTEMBER 2014, 19:00 H

Park Lužánky, Brno, CZ (copy/paste 49°12'50.618"N, 16°36'29.518"E into a map service of your choice)

A little one-nite only photo exhibition will take place. Organized by Terez Kalábová, Břeťa Vomočil, Lukáš Schejbal, Peťa Polášková, Martin Půček, Pavel Vech, Nelleke Kruijmer (NL), Honza Bleha, Míra Zítko, Eunika Muntágová (SK) and myself (DE) (all CZ if not mentioned otherwise) will be showing between one to six photographies each. Terez writes:

Some pictures are home made in bathroom-style dark room (Martin Půček and Lukáš Schejbal), some people are using old cameras: me, Lukáš and Martin have Flexaret/Yashica, Eunika and Honza are using Lomo, Břéťa is combining digital and old style camera, Peťa, Pavel, Míra and Nelleke are having some digital stuff [Robin too]. Míra is also used to paint as well as I do. Nelleke has [an] incredibly terrible camera but her photos are amazing.

Originally, the exhibition was supposed to take place in an old factory, but the developer was to fast and it is guarded now. I am excited to be showing one picture there. I wish I could come to Brno myself and see the installation on clotheslines. Fortunately, I think, enough photographers will be there to document;-)

Come see some of my Mail Art in Copenhagen!

I was invited by A Kassen (blogged about them here) to participate in Den Frie’s Summer exhibition, which they curate.

From Friday, June 22nd on until August 12th 2012, some of my Mail Art will be shown at Den Frie  Udstillingsbygning.  The opening is this Friday. The invitation reads:

On opening day there will be a performance by Simon Dybbroe Møller. In connection with the opening of LIFE CLOCK, we cordially invite you to our big summer-party at DEN FRIE Centre of contemporary art.
There will be food from Øbro Spisehus and beer on tap, all on Friday the 22. of June at 17-21.

Here is the poster for the exhibition and some text about it:

Thank you to everybody who suffered my sometimes seemingly requests for parts, comments and know-how in preparing my works for this show. I will be blogging some of them here.

If you can’t make it to the opening (but still are around some time until the exhibition closes in August), keep coming back. I will be sending new works to Den Frie until the beginning of August, which will be added to the ongoing exhibition.

I am looking forward to seeing works of all the other artists at the show on Friday. It sounds really promising.

As always, I’m happy about mail at:
