Fischerspooner: SIR

When Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner founded their art, music, and performance project FISCHERSPOONER in 1998 in New York, they had a mission—to make the stuffy and elitist art scene more open and accessible. Success came quickly. After their first orgiastic and opulent performances like those at MoMAPS1, FISCHERSPOONER became the talk of the town and key protagonists in the city’s art scene. With their song Emerge they landed an international club hit that took them into the top 40 in the British charts and in 2002 even led to an appearance in the cultTVshow Top of the Pops.

FISCHERSPOONER will be presenting their dazzling and playful universe with its queer passion and all its countless references to pop culture for the first time at mumok. An installation will recreate Casey Spooner’s New York apartment. This raises questions as to the parameters of private and public space. Where does the private refuge of someone in the limelight really end? What happens if you suspend the borders between private and public space? The installation is an artistic extension of FISCHERSPOONER’s fourth album project, entitled Sir. It was produced by Michael Stipe (R.E.M.) and addresses the dissolution of the borders between an internal and an external social self.
