SOLD OUT: Guided Tour of the Neubauer Collegium "Gelitin's Democratic Sculpture 7"

This tour is sold out. In the fall of 2023, the Neubauer Collegium gallery hosts an exhibition by the Viennese artist collective Gelitin, presented as part of the fifth Chicago Architecture Biennial. Founded in 1993, the quartet first met in 1978 “when they all attended a summer camp”—and they have been “playing and working together” ever since. Known internationally for their ambitious public art projects and transgressive performances, Gelitin are indefatigable partisans of the ludic impulse in art, forever honoring Friedrich Schiller’s claim that “man only plays when he is in the fullest sense of the word a human being, and he is only fully a human being when he plays.” For their exhibition at the Neubauer Collegium, Gelitin will construct a room-size sculpture that makes a series of brief appearances at select Chicago Architecture Biennial sites this fall.
