G.R.A.M - Der Coup der tadellosen Männer

Der Coup der tadellosen Männer


Alongside other projects such as Paparazzi the Austrian group of artists known as G.R.A.M. has been restaging existing image worlds since 1998. G.R.A.M. directs the viewer’s gaze at the function of the images, the politics of the visible. The satirising repetition of mass media images branded into our perception examines the conventional production mechanisms of reality. Under the title Der Coup der tadellosen Männer [The faultless men’s coup] G.R.A.M. uses new re-enactments to recreate situations which seem very different at rst sight: politicians shortly before or after an of cial photo shoot; dancing soldiers; bodyguards quaintly standing in the rain; parliamentarians who have nodded off; the rst photo of two popes; footballers stacking their bodies up into pyramids as they celebrate; and lots more. What these images have is common is their performative character.

G.R.A.M. (Günther Holler-Schuster, *1963, Martin Behr,* 1964 ) live and work in Graz, Austria.
