Barbis Ruder: Wertschöpfungskette: 2F – Attacke
Performing Public Art

© Ewa Stern

Value Chain (2013–2015) is a series of works comprising various body interventions in public space.

1F – Attack is the sixth work in the series. In the early morning hours, Barbis Ruder runs up against a rotating advertising column. Like a fly attracted by the light, the artist smacks against the column again and again.

In 2F – Attack, the live version of the video, six artists throw themselves against facades and closed doors. Through their “tilting at windmills,” the artists attack the institutions with their own flesh and blood. The intervention will take place along a route between MAK, Angewandte, Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz, Kunsthalle MQ and Architekturzentrum Wien. In a repetition of the same rhythm, first the artists lie exhausted on the ground, only to rise again, run to the next location, and undertake the next attempt.
