Award project of the Robert Jungk Art Competition
The crisis is ubiquitous: as crisis of the economy, lack of values or political credibilty and crisis of each and every issue between milk gone sour and the state of Austrian football. gold extra puts the rule to the test: How does the elongated global economic crisis affect the individual? The project „Local Crisis Machine“ lets a slot machine, a classic one-armed-bandit turn into a crisis intervention. The gambling machine becomes a discursive forum, a documentary project inviting us to play with the European debt crisis: The classic three cylinders of a rebuilt slot machine display European situations of very personal crisis management with contributions from Wales, Spain, Roumania, Germany and many more. The „Local Crisis Machine“ is the official art project for the celebration of the 100th birthday of Robert Jungk.
