“One can work with media art/performance of different kinds. There are documentation- performances, some with or without public presence. There are also media works that involve the public by inviting them into an active participation. I decided to choose art works, in which the artists are visible themselves; but these are video works, not performances. There will be a journey through the last 20 years of Swiss media art – with works of different duration, esthetics and content”.
