This publication documents the 2016 exhibition “One, No One and One Hundred Thousand,” which took place at Kunsthalle Wien, Karlsplatz. Curated by Luca Lo Pinto, the show took its inspiration from Oulipo, a literary strategy whose objective was to propose new “structures” for writing that were mathematical in nature. Using A Thousand Billion Poems, a 1961 book by Raymond Queneau, one of Oulipo’s founders, as a manifesto for the exhibition, nine artists were invited to create new works in a display that would change depending on the wishes of the visitor.

 

Investigating and reformulating the conventional structure and limitations of exhibition making, “One, No One and One Hundred Thousand” challenged curatorial authorship and explored potentiality. The main actor of the exhibition was the viewer who was not a consumer but a coproducer, alongside the artists and the curator. This publication, which comprises photographs, dates, time stamps, and the names of the visitors, is a record of the 178 unique exhibitions realized.

 

With artist contributions by Darren Bader, Jason Dodge, Phanos Kyriacou, Adriana Lara, Jonathan Monk, Marlie Mul, Amalia Pica, Martin Soto Climent, Lina Viste Grønli.
