Museumsaufseher, Haus der Kunst, October - December 2017

Museumsaufseher is Simon Freund’s first artistic performance at a distinguished museum for contemporary art, namely the ‘Haus der Kunst’ in Munich, Germany. Employed by the museum as a guard, he performs the role of a museum guard the moment he begins his shift as such, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, pastiche and normality, neglect and virtue, questioning the difference between a work of art and the art of work.
