Gelitin

Collective pranksters Gelitin have a long history of producing irreverent art, much of which involves direct audience interaction. Like the resulting works themselves, the nature of the collaboration is often ludic or even absurd.

Weltwunder, an installation created for the 2000 Hannover expo, consisted of a hidden, underground cave which could only be reached through a three-metre-deep, water-filled entrance tunnel.

To access the 'Wonder of the World' within, members of the public were invited to "strip off, ask their friends to take care of their belongings, take (a) deep breath and dive in."
