Hannes Egger practice is linked to an essentially conceptual approach aimed at engaging and interacting with the public. The performances, installations and participatory projects invite people to adopt an unusual attitude or viewpoint, in order to reflect on our surrounding reality and the way we share the spaces we inhabit. His concept of art does not refer to an opus in the most traditional sense, but consists of creating situations of an open and in-progress platform, to see how these situations will develop once the audience participates. Hannes Egger often provides some coordinates or instructions to follow, and thus turns the action of the participant into the art work itself.
