Since 2011, grüntaler9 has been a space in constant transformation, dedicated exclusively to performance art and time-based art projects. It is a spatial concept that addresses the performative in discursive dialogue. It’s not a gallery, not a white cube, not a black box. Each performance leaves visible and invisible traces that are taken over and edited in order to become palimpsest-like again.
grüntaler9 sees itself as a continuous, collaborative performance, as a work of art & art event with multiple authorships and, at the same time, as a critical discussion of originality and authenticity. There are almost no limits for the artists, they only have to face the challenge of the found space-specific situation. Any transformation is allowed as long as it takes place within the announced performance. Preparations or forms of rehearsal that change the space and lead to a “planned” presentation are not intended.
