Julius  Deutschbauer


Klagenfurt, Austria, 1961.
Lives and works in Vienna.
From 2000 through 2007 Deutschbauer exhibited extensively with the artist Gerhard Spring as “Deutschbauer/Spring”, and in 2001 they participated in the Venice Biennale as self-appointed representatives, staging interventions that were documented in numerous publications.


Project Description

For The Graphic Unconscious, Deutschbauer showed his Library of Unread Books project. He invited members of the Philadelphia community to submit books that they have not read but felt they should. The accumulation of books was a sort of sociological portrait of Philadelphia in terms of its literary and cultural leanings, as well as an opportunity to delve into other people's (wrong) choices.
