zweintopf was founded by Eva Pichler (*1981) and Gerhard Pichler (*1980) as an artist duo in 2006 in Graz and is active both in classical exhibition settings and in public space. Alongside site-specific installations, objects and videos, their work involves the development of ideas realised as art in public space or in the form of unannounced interventions. 

While in our bustling daily routines an allegedly inescapable „as soon as possible-mentality” is established zweintopf are working consistently on their poetry of trivial things. The artist duo is screening codes and symbols of the ordinary, the public – always in search for that characteristic element of absurdity which is inherent to every human endeavour.

Since 2009 zweintopf is as well very active in initiating and organising projects and ideas in and about public spaces involving an extremely wide variety of artists. Teaching at the TU Graz and currently at the FH Joanneum Graz they also discuss the status of the public space. At present they are responsible for the visual art program at FORUM STADTPARK in Graz.
