Schlingensiefs performances


Schlingensief's (art) performances centre on prostitutes, down-and-outs, junkies, asylum-seekers and political attacks on the powers that be. Whether the foundation of a new party agenda (Chance 2000) or religious sect (Church of Fear), the deportation of asylum-seekers (Please Love Austria) or a call to murder the chancellor (Mein Filz, mein Fett, mein Hase...), his critical view of society is evident in all of his work, not just the more spectacular performances. He is always involved in the action, appearing in turns as an artist, a show host, as the leader of a sect, as party chairman or as a priest. Provocation and cynicism are crucial components of his work. The removal of the formal boundaries between the actors and their audience reflect Schlingensief's belief that the daily routine is in itself a staged event.
