Hannes Egger, Public Performance, 2014

Immediacy, intimacy, spatial multiplicity, and interaction with the public are the cornerstones of Hannes Egger’s “Public Performance”, where the use of smart phones has reached a high degree of attention and entertainment value, simultaneously: Hannes Egger takes the stage at the Societat Escaulenca, and from this position of power, he demands that the audience participate in the very simple, universal and particular gesture of a television program; coming up onto the stage to be photographed with the artist, in a handshake or embrace, and the promise of receiving the picture immediately, and thus, being a part of the eventual publication (which you now have in your hands).
