From 2000 until 2007, the artists Julius Deutschbauer (Klagenfurt, AT, 1961–Vienna, AT) and Gerhard Spring (Scheibbs, AT, 1962–Vienna, AT) worked together as a duo, describing themselves as “service-oriented commission and auxiliary artists.” They were best known for posters, performances, and installations in which they articulated critical statements on current political and social affairs.
In the “Interview Machine,” originally conceived as a performance and action in the public arena, Deutschbauer/Spring confronted visitors to the Salzburg Festival and tourists as well as locals with randomly selected questions of the sort that are typically posed to refugees and migrants, delicately but insistently urging the interviewees to imagine themselves in these unwonted roles.
