Gob Squad is a group of English and German artists who have been working collectively with performance since 1994. Their work is characterised by a desire to place Romantic beauty into the mundane by inserting home made magic and small-scale spectacle into everyday life. Audiences and public are often invited to participate in these interventions. Their work can be seen as an exploration of fantasy and desire in relation to contemporary urban existence.
As well as producing work for radio, internet, galleries and theatre, the group has used offices, houses, shops, hotels and railway stations as starting points to generate images and concepts. In the last decade the use of video cameras have become central to their interventions.
