Item description for Christian Philipp Muller by Philipp Kaiser Sabeth Buchmann...
The Swiss artist Christian Philipp Muller, who has been based in New York and Cologne for more than a decade, may be best known for a series of performances timed to his appearance in the 1993 Venice Bienniale: Green Border saw him cross over and back from Austria to adjacent territories repeatedly, each time illegally. Muller, who has also performed as a Dutch royal at ceremonious social occasions and costumed himself as a museum guard, given out mock-historical pamphlets and offered tours of student exhibitions, remains interested in all the questions raised by this sort of work--in context or site-specificity, in historical or cultural codes, in research and investigations of all sorts, and not least in surprising and entertaining the viewer. Christian Philipp Muller offers a concise survey of his oeuvre.
