American Pavilion

The American Pavilion (a pavilion that happen already/never happen)



Jeff Gompertz(*USA) combines new technologies with traditional tools of production to create theatrical installations with a minimalist bent. An attention to situational architectures and architectural situations, a fascination with hyperreality theoretics, these play an ongoing role in his work, reflected in the group name Fakeshop, which he formed as a collective in 1997. The pieces often address contemporary themes and social issues in response to the site of installation, incorporating live video, hidden cameras, web broadcasting, and performance elements. A core member of, he participated in numerous experimental internet broadcasts and webcast performances in the early days of the net art movement. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at; The Whitney Biennial/USA, Ars Electronica/Austria, ARCO/Spain, and Japan Foundation/Japan.
