Christoph Draeger
Subterranean Doomsday Vendor

In his performative action Subterranean Doomsday Vendor, Draeger positions himself in the subway system of Mexico City, as part of the common occurrence of bootleg media vendors. His contribution lies in dissemination of prophecy as he tests the public’s reactions to the types of content and media which can be circulated in such common spaces.

Swiss artist Christoph Draeger lives and works between Vienna and NY. His investigations focus on the dominance of media over society as he exploits topics of catastrophe, tragedy and entropy as an underlying social condition. His media based works utilize found and made material and his variations of the apocalyptic thematic spin upon layers of historical events.
