The lottery - an institution that takes place in some form or another in most countries and is typically associated with the working class -constitutes an important signifier for Oscar Murillo. It brings together many of the themes found throughout his practice, including the dichotomy between work and leisure as well as between performance and the finished work of art.

Discussing his interest in the institution of the lottery, Murillo has noted: “The lottery is a popular cultural phenomenon. It is a cultural endeavor that transcends geography, but notably its practice is well established amongst working class societies, and both native and immigrant communities living in the US, Europe and Latin America. The promise of economic mobility and social advancement through winning the lottery, despite the improbable odds, continues to fuel people’s participation, and speaks more broadly to the circumstances of the middle and working classes living around the world and to the basis of chance economies upon unattainable aspirations and desires. The lottery ticket series and its resulting “prize draw” is at once transparent and opaque; whilst each player is made visible in the lottery process, the final prize was not revealed until the draw.”

Haus der Kunst is grateful for Oscar Murillo's engagement with this fundraising action for the Museum and supports his concept for the lottery process. Murillo has created 100 lottery tickets each of which are a unique work of art with screen print, oil paint, ink and mixed media on newsprint.

Each unique work will be signed by the artist and randomly assigned to the buyer at the discretion of the artist. The buyer will not be able to choose the piece for purchase. The price to be paid depends when the request for a lottery ticket is officially received per email at lottery (at) hausderkunst.de. The first 10 buyers will pay €3,205. Buyers 11 through 50 will pay €5,205. Buyers 51 through 100 will pay €8,205. The 100 lottery tickets (or unique works) will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Only one buyer can purchase one lottery ticket with a request from a unique email address. Multiple requests for lottery tickets by the same buyer will not be acknowledged after the first request has been accepted. The buyer´s first and last name will be written in calligraphy on a piece of paper and framed with the lottery ticket. Each lottery ticket is a chance to win the main prize, which will be determined and randomly assigned to a lottery ticket holder by the artist at a later date.

The lottery starts on Monday the 25th of September at 4 pm (CET), requests received previously will not be considered.
