Cologne artists' Guerrilla Electronics come to Tallinn
The Kumu has been boobytrapped: an exhibition by a Cologne-based group now entering its second week at Tallinn's primary art museum consists of audio IEDs that surprise visitors, reports news.err.ee.
“Soundbombs” is the work of the PUPLIK.ORG duo of Diane Müller and Werner Magar. The multi-part, multimedia installation is situated in various corners and recesses of the building, effectively bringing the feel of the museum's more experimental top floor to the entire building.
Müller and Magar are well-regarded for their take on public space and how it is perceived and construed. The group’s repertoire has included similar "guerrilla“ electronics in shopping centers as well as performance art.
The Tallinn installation was made possible in cooperation with the Goethe Institute and runs at the Kumu until July 22.
