The KUB Billboards for VALIE EXPORT’s exhibition offer insight into how a music piece is produced, a process typically not open to the public eye. At the heart of the artist’s sound sculpture at the KUB is the song Oh Lord, Don’t Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb on Me by Charles Mingus from the early 1960s. For the Kunsthaus Bregenz, the jazz pianist Peter Madsen created a new arrangement of the piece and recorded it together with his band. The six KUB Billboards along the Seestraße in Bregenz display photos of the seven musicians recording the piece. They document the work in the studio and extend it into public space.
The KUB billboards located on Seestraße, the main thoroughfare in Bregenz, city’s busiest street, are an integral part of the program.They extend the respective KUB exhibition into the public space.
