From 20 May to 24 May 2011 the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich is accessible only through the back door. The class for performative art and sculpture of the Vienna Academy of Fine Art creeps up on the institution from behind to realise a several-day exhibition experiment there. The resulting project, “There Was A Job To Be Done And Everybody Was Sure Somebody Would Do It” uses a brief period between two regular exhibitions in the institutional programme.

Collective and solo works that attempt to break out of and to address such questions were developed from a several-month workshop with students on artistic working methods (e.g. hybrid formats, media, interests, needs, abilities and identities of students), on the practice of art institutions and on the habitual patterns that define the space, context and profile of an institution (e.g. local, spatial, temporal and content features).

As a platform, the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich offers a materialised setting for these explorations, which are generated through the process of brainstorming, possible forms of exhibiting, group experience, communication and exchange. Installations, film presentations, print concepts and performances – up to the productivity of absence – are mixed, shifted into one another and broken, in order thus to produce diagram of a group exhibition that is situation- rather than venue-specific.
