The Nul-Pointers

8th May to 8th June 2015

The LEOPOLD MUSEUM presents an undisputed art highlight in the run-up to the 60th Eurovision Song Contest. The presentation »THE NUL-POINTERS« is an unconventional artistic contribution to the musical event of the year by the brilliant cartoonist, writer and recipient of the prestigious “Ingeborg Bachmann Prize” Tex Rubinowitz.

Rubinowitz is a self-confessed fan of the Song Contest. Reaching for his brush and paints, the artist is not interested in depicting the winners, but rather the so-called »nul pointers« – those 34 Song Contest participants whose performances did not earn them a single point from the jury. The faces of these ultimate show-business losers are captured on wooden tablets. Accompanied by short texts, they represent icons of failure.
