PRATER STERN STUNDEN (1/4)
Markus Hofer – PolizeiS

Season opening:
Tuesday, 24.04.2018, 2 – 4 pm

From April to July 2018 philomena+ is realizing a series of artistic interventions at the Praterstern in Vienna. The interventions are created with an emphasis on location and participation and aim to turn visions and dream images of an inhospitable place into reality.   

The artist Markus Hofer starts this series with the project „PolizeiS“ (a pun with the German words of police and ice cream). In general, his artistic works are based on familiar, everyday items and materials, altering their original functions by minimal manipulation and thus providing them with new levels of meaning.
In the scope of Prater Stern Stunden, Markus Hofer designed the first PolizeiS stall with its own PolizeiS flavors, distributed to the public for tasting. By adding a single letter at the end of the police logo, the law enforcement organization is given a sweet and cold component. In addition to the association of the police force with security and a state of alert, new sensual associations arise such as refreshment and pleasure of eating ice cream.
