curated by Severin Dünser and Christian Kobald

The contribution investigates the relationship between object, biography, narrative and display through fragments of works by two Eastern European artists from different countries and generations: young Lithuanian artist Liudvikas Buklys (*1984) and Slovakian documenta participant Stano Filko (*1937), complemented by a third, performative contribution by Canadian artist Michele Di Menna (*1980).The storyboard: biography, anecdote, treasure hunt, classicism, Siberia, the repository, colour, the gesamtkunstwerk, the house, id, cognition, pause, sekt, precarious. The set: three boards, white, rockets, the tasche, a statement, a catalogue, an LP, animation, two objects, a story, a performance, that which remains.

The curators would like to thank Fedor Blaščák for his help during the preparation for the show.
