EVA & ADELE’s work finds its raison d’être in their permanent, lifelong performance which takes place worldwide throughout the public space. The work group CUM (lat. WITH) is the essence of the interactive process. It was acknowledged as early as 1997 in the Sprengel Museum with the solo exhibition CUM, and is continued to this day in a variety of media.
EVA & ADELE requested one of two Polaroids taken by the public – co-performers – including a signature. Based on this they created a group of important drawings and paintings which they developed in the subsequent artistic process and have continued until today. The publication forms the work complex CUM in its entirety; the volume is completed by valuable text contributions by Robert Fleck, Lisa Schmidt-Herzog and Marcus Steinweg.
