The Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon was the sixth in the Gallery's acclaimed Marathon series. This two-day event explored the concept of the garden.
Since the late 1980s, the works of Swiss-born artist Christian Philipp Müller in various media update artistic models of historical conceptualism and institutional critique on the basis of an expanded notion of site-specificity. They are united by a methodological premise that is followed as rigidly as humorously: it is the context of an artwork from which its production needs to depart. Müller's works have been developed for numerous international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale and documenta, Kassel. Projects are on-going on the campus of Lüneburg University; Queens College, Social Sciences, New York; Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson; and Cloistergardens Melk, Austria. Since 2011, Müller is the Dean of Kunsthochschule Kassel.
