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 and accurate chronicler of the ESC. Reaching for his brush and paints, the artist is not interested in depicting the winners of the past six decades, but rather the so-called »nul pointers« – those 34 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.
