A few years ago, independently from one another, McCarthy and Bouchet both had made a work that transformed the Guggenheim Museum in New York into a toilet. This coincidence sparked an ongoing conversation about shared interests in the politics of art institutions and their architecture, leading up to a site-specific project for Portikus that took up these concerns in a multi-layered exhibition structure involving not only the main exhibition space, but the office, the monumental attic space, the exterior of the building, the island that the institution is housed on as well as external locations within the city. The project has now culminated in an extensive publication, documenting the process and the final outcome of Powered A-Hole Spanish Donkey Sport Dick Drink Donkey Dong Dongs Sunscreen Model.
