One Man Anti Show di Július Koller
Nel gioco, come in politica, puoi scegliere di seguire o ignorare le regole; se accompagnato da fair play anche un semplice incontro di ping pong può trasformarsi in un momento di scambio con l’avversario. Partiva da queste premesse Jùlius Koller quando creò il J.K. Ping-Pong Club alla Galleria Mladých di Bratislava nel 1970. Ora quel leggendario spazio d’azione e partecipazione artistica e sociale rivive a Museion.All’interno della mostra di Július Koller è possibile giocare a tennistavolo.
A partire dal 25 maggio 2017 Ogni giovedì, 18–21.30 h

Július Koller (1939–2007) is one of the most important Eastern European artists working since the 1960s, whose art had and has considerable international significance. This is the most comprehensive exhibition of the Slovak artist’s work to date, documenting his independent contribution to the neo-avantgarde and based on painstaking research into his art and archives.
Koller‘s work developed in critical distance to the communist authorities and their official art, and it also questioned traditions in modernism and the conventions of the Western art business. Since the mid-1960s he designed Antihappenings and Antipictures, creating a playfully ironic oeuvre that combined a Dadaist spirit with radical-skeptical stance. Koller painted object-images in white latex and pictures of question marks that became the universal symbol of his critical view of everyday life and reality.
Koller saw tennis and table tennis as participatory art forms and here too he combined sport with political statement by demanding that the rules of the game and fair play be adhered to—as the basis of all social action.
