Whatever Happened To Geletin

Whatever Happened To Geletin
Angela Christlieb
82 min., 2016, Austria

Artist Liam Gillick hasn’t seen them. Director John Waters has no idea where they are. Filmmaker Tony Conrad has his theories, but he’s not saying. But whoever you ask, the fact remains, the four members of the Austrian artist group, Gelitin (Wolfgang Gantner, Ali Janka, Florian Reither, and Tobias Urban) have disappeared! So Salvatore Viviano, artist, art dealer, and occasional collaborator in Geletin performances, sets off on a cinematic search for the funniest boy group in the world. With an imposing microphone in hand, he questions artists, gallerists and curators about the group’s possible whereabouts.

This is a celebration of a multimedia practice oozing in humour, spontaneity, child-like naiveté and blatant sexuality. From performances and documentations of happenings to the iconic series such as Mona Lisa and Falling Sculptures, the show will once again invite the visitors to participate in this journey in order to enjoy art from a whole new perspective. This film pokes fun at how art is consumed in a conservative manner, forcing the viewer to engage in a new and exciting fashion.
