Keen on Art

Dieter Roth:
Hase aus Hasendreck

café au lit combines the three basic elements of experiencing contemporary art: temporality, sociability and intimacy. The name of the project is a play on the familiar "café au lait" and the colloquial French phrase "qu'a fait au lit?" - who wet the bed? Hence, the project name recalls the first association of the self with the object, recognized since Freud's Psychoanalysis as the fundamental experience of creative work: "I did it! I made that!" It is in this spirit that café au lit wishes to make the enjoyment of the art experience possible.
