Gelitin is a collective made up of Wolfgang Gantner, Ali Janka, Florian Reither and Tobias Urban. 
These four artists first met at a summer camp in 1978, where they began to collaborate. The Gelitin collective only officially formed and began exhibiting in 1993. They work and live in Vienna, Austria.

Gelitin's projects cover a wide range of media, from performance and installation to sculpture and new media. Despite this diversity, their work is united by a common goal: to challenge the conventional relationship between the artwork and the audience.
Gelitin frequently invites the public to participate in their work, encouraging viewers to become co-creators and collaborators rather than passive spectators. In some cases, they even invite the destruction of the artwork, blurring the boundaries between creation and demolition.

Thanks to its unique mixture of humour, spontaneity, naïveté child and sexuality audacity, Gelitin s'est imposé as a pioneering force in the world of art. Their work encourages viewers to see the world in a new light and embrace the unexpected. By blurring the boundaries between art and life, Gelitin offers a playful and imaginative escape from the everyday.


Penser le Présent is produced with the support of Société Générale.
