Through invitations from art institutions, the artist group WochenKlausur develops concrete proposals aimed at small but effective improvements in local socio-political problems. By translating these proposals into action, artistic creativity is no longer seen as a formal act but as an intervention into society. It started in 1992 when Wolfgang Zinggl invited eight artists to solve a localised problem during an exhibition at the Secession in Vienna. Within the normal time span of an exhibition, these eight artists developed and realised a small but concrete measure to make medical care available to the homeless. An invitation from the Zurich Shedhalle followed, where the group, now called WochenKlausur, developed a pension for drug-addicted women. Invitations from art institutions in Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden, the Netherlands and the USA followed. Member Claudia Eipeldauer discusses the group's work
