on sunday the 21st of may 2000 Kasper König, a famous and highly
recommended german art curator (expo 2000, documenta..)
Marin Fritz, an also well known austrian curator and Jessica Beer, she
is in charge of the final exhibition of the Academy of fine arts Vienna
and for pr belongings of the academy visited the Master class of Renee
Green to decide which artworks will be presented in the final exhibition

(presspreview: tuesday 20th of june 2000 at 1100h in the
morning;official opening speech at 20:30 h the same day) the class
suggested to ask the curator(Kasper König) two questions, before
starting with the inspection of the art works, question one dealt with
the political situation in Austria in connection with the final
exhibition, the question was if there was any concept or even a focus on

the political status quo in austria...question number two asked the
curator, what he personally thinks about that he has to look at more
than 300 artworks in a two and a half days period of time(!), and then
has to decide in an objective and distanced way, whether the art work is

"good" or "bad"...
it seemed that these two questions had been enough for him, he only said

"..ich halte ihre Fragen für absurd" stood up and left the class with
the words "..wenn ihr wollt dass ich kucken soll, dann holt ich rein,
ich habe keine lust auf solche sachen". the situation escalated, a nice
discussion with co-curator Martin Fritz and public relation women
Jessica Beer followed. What the curator didn´t know was that he had been

taped all the time by two hidden camerasin class. what came out is a
documentary parody of the day a person called Kasper König entered the

cameras, editing, postproduction by harald scherz (19-6-2000)
