2004 and the language of contemporary art is the theme Kaspar König and Hannes Bend have chosen for b00d. The dialogue of the artists precedes the concept - texts from Deleuze to Descartes about the language of philosophers.
The title was derived from the year date and the translation of letters into numbers (a=1, b=2, c=3, d=4, etc.). The name b00d (b -zero- zero- d) is neither linguistically comprehensible nor does it succumb to a meaning, although the visual appearance suggests vocalization.
b00d is associated with the frequently investigated area of “art and language.” Explorations of the borders between genres and between art and non-art play an important role.
