Photographs by Mara Truog
Wherever the performance artist Heinrich Lüber appears, all physical laws seem to turn up side down.
Floating high over the city streets, adopting strange body parts, or standing for hours on the head of his double in the open sea - he always can be assured of the amazed gaze by passers by as well as by the art community.
The attitude of the artist Till Velten is supported by curiosity and guided by a deep interest in methods of social research. However, he is not concerned about clear-cut explications but rather tries to investigate the complexities of human individuality and its place in society.
