SURVEILLANCE/ÜBERWACHUNG was a part of the project "ARTIG", a group project for the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) 1981.
"ARTIG" treated the space of the transport system of the city as a drawing of the city - drawn and redrawn every day by the travellers as they moved about the city. The transport space of the city was also conceived of as including the "communication-space" of the media. The "ARTIG" artists were: Robert Adrian, Gottfried Bechtold, Waltraut Cooper, Otto Eder, Peter Gerwin Hoffmann, INTAKT, Richard Kriesche, Irwin Puls, and Peter Weibel. The artists managed the budget collectively and appointed Grita Insam as coordinator.
