The artists had been working together since 1979. Their works are covering a broad spectrum of artistic forms of expression from film to photography and artists’ books, to sculptures made of the most varied of materials and multimedia installations. They adapted objects and situations from everyday life—not without humor and irony—and place them in an artistic context, and thus pose philosophical and theoretical questions on explaining the world.
