Katalog zur Ausstellung 16.11.07 – 16.03.08, Andrea Bina, Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz (Hrsg.), 2007, 100 Seiten, Paperback, farbige Abbildungen.
With the exhibition HAUS-RUCKER-CO LIVE again the Lentos Art Museum shows the centerpiece of the exhibition staging of LIVE from 1970: The Giant Billard, a hybrid of a giant billard and box ring, is a white pneumatic mattress 15 x 15 meters large and one meter high, on which there are three white, inflated balls made of PVC. The mattress can function as a stage, on which the people virtually become actors in the scene. The intention at the time was to break open the view immanent to the museum and to playfully question the status of the recipients with this intervention. The museum as a playground?
Nearly fourty years later, the expectations of the museum visitors have been raised: in addition to its basic tasks a museum today offers high quality entertainment.
The group HAUS-RUCKER-CO became active in the space of the museum and in public space: it was a time of expanding consciousness and arranging urban space. Prototypes for new ideas for living were created, influenced by new building materials, and proposals for redesigning people´s living space.
