About

Thomas Geiger's artistic practice is based on performative, sculptural and ephemeral approaches, mainly in relation to public space: He is the creator of The Festival of Minimal Actions, a festival dedicated to intangible actions in public space and Kunsthalle3000, an institution as intervention in public space. Furthermore, he is a co-founder of the publishing house Mark Pezinger Verlag. In many respects his ongoing performance I want to become a millionaire can be seen as the back bone of his practice, allowing him to fund his activities in an independent way.
