SWISS ART AWARD (NOMINEE) 2016
Roland Roos was paying two competing singer, one female and one male, to each sing a karaoke song in a loop at the SWISS ART AWARD competition. The female singer did perform the song «Loser» by Beck, and the male singer performed Leonard Cohen's «Hallelujah». According to the jury decision, one singer lost the job: if the jury awarded the prize to Roland Roos, «Hallelujah» would have been performed at the exhibition by the male performer. Since Roland did not get awarded, the female performer kept her job and performed for over 60 hours the song «Loser».
In collaboration with Joana Aderi, Anna Murphy and Daniel Hotz. The work was shown during Art Basel 2016.
