Wolf Vostell

Endogen Depression


There have been approximately nine versions of Endogen Depression, a work that Vostell started in 1975at the Hannover Art Museum, Germany. This installation consists of approximately forty objects; including tables, dressers and tube televisions that together bring up references of a traditional domestic home. All the televisions are half embedded in concrete and about ten of them will be turned on. In the original installation at LAICA, all of the televisions were turned on with the sound turned very low...
Vostell, who is known as the first artist to integrate a television set into a work of art, was based in Berlin, Germany and Malpartida, Spain but also spent time in America (California, New York and Illinois). He was deeply involved in the Happenings and Fluxus movements of the 1960s, working in close proximity to Allan Kaprow, Alison Knowles, George Maciunas, Dick Higgins and Nam June Paik. Vostell was also a part of the NO! Movement of New York, NY.
