Elisabeth von Samsonow. Juergen Teller
he Parents’ Bedroom Show (Creating Time)


€23.64 (excl. VAT)

This catalog, published by Niederösterreichische Landesgalerie in cooperation with Zuecca Projects and The PhotoPhore, Venice, documents, comments on and compresses the performance project THE PARENTS’ BEDROOM SHOW by Elisabeth von Samsonow, which was captured on film in 62 photographs by Juergen Teller. This specific constellation consisting of a performance, photography and an artistically modified documentary (which takes the form of film stills in the catalog) indicates a path to the understanding of cross-media relationships in contemporary art. The content of the performance, the (fictitious) primal scene, i.e. the coitus of the parents, is reinterpreted in the context of the more recent usage of the term, i.e. to represent the most important scene in a film (or a life), which organizes everything else.
