The Schaumbad is located in the industrial area of southern Graz, the exhibition was about reasearching the area.
The installation ” All my Animals” was about wildlife in the exhibition space (a 1100m2 huge hall where a bottling plant once was situated) With the help of sausages and sensorcameras the nightlife of mice could be pictured.

The writer and performer Johannes Schrettle (zweite liga für kunst und kultur) sent me this text (english below):
Zärtlichkeit mit B
ein bunker, wo menschen versammelt sind, die nie mehr rauskommen. es schaut ein bisschen aus nach einem französischen film, ein paar obszöne details sind ständig im blickfeld. dann taucht auf einmal unter einer bettdecke ein kollektiv auf:
HEY! ICH HABE IN DEN 80ern SCHON MAL DARAN GEDACHT EINEN BAUM ZU PFLANZEN. HEUTE HABE ICH EIN UNTERNEHMEN. DER BUNKER IST MEINE ZIELGRUPPE MEIN PUBLIKUM UND MEINE GROSSE LIEBE. IRGENDWANN WERDE ICH WIEDER AUFTAUCHEN ABER DANN ALS ZÄRTLICHES MONSTER. IN DER KOMBÜSE. AM JAKOMINIPLATZ. IM BRUNNEN. AM ZENTRALFRIEDHOF. EIN PAAR SCHRÄGE SOUNDS.
Tenderness with B
A bunker, where people are gathered, who never will get out again. It looks a bit like in a french movie, all the time there are some obscene details in the fileld of vision. Suddently a collective emerges from under a bedspread:
“Hey! I have thought about planting a tree already in the 1980s. Today I have a business company. The bunker is my target audience my public and my great love. Eventually I will emerge again but then as a tender beast. In the galley. At the Jakomini square. In the fountain. At the central cemetary.” A few crooked sounds.
