patrick baumüller is searching for clues in a world of entanglements. at the center of his attention lies the human being with all his/her wishes, hopes, but also weaknesses and insufficiencies in an increasingly impersonal living environment. liking to drift along the border between art, commerce, and politics (cf. projects such as wursthaberer, w.e.t.o., rothkrebschen märzenbier, speakers’ corner), baumüller scans the surfaces of our society and transfers his perceptions in an astonishingly simple and thrilling way into the artistic context and the showroom. once they have arrived there and are on offer, the visitor, similar to a public archeological excavation, can look over the artist’s shoulder and become entangled in repressed occurrences, old memories, and fleetingly perceived inconsistencies from the interpersonal web of relations […] (galerie stock, vienna)
