Gob Squad: Western Society

Gob Squad: Western Society


Gob Squad is a group of international artists who have made performances and videos, searching for beauty in the everyday, since 1994.

Western Society is a portrait of civilisation in the 21st century, like a frame through which we can peep into the living room of an unknown family, and recognize ourselves. By exploring the internet’s remote darkness, Gob Squad have brought back a tiny satellite, an unwatched video of an anonymous living room, of a family gathering somewhere at the edge of the western world.

Western Society is inviting and isolating. It’s heaven and hell. Some see a nightmare, others a place they desire. You are there too...

“The show has an irresistible magic and is quite simply a barrel load of fun.” Berliner Morgenpost
