«Water Yump – A swimming ensemble in the Rhine» pays homage to George Brecht’s Water Yam and continues Thomas Geiger’s practice that operates at the intersections between public, private and institutional spaces seeking contact with different forms of the public. He considers these works to be stages for collaboration, dialogue and confrontation. These projects are not based on the notions of individuality but include the works of other artists as to become part of a common, public sculpture. For Water Yump we are inviting the audience into direct contact with the works of 12 artists. This encounter will be taking place in an especially notable exhibition space – the Rhine river.
