Formed in 1993, the Austrian artist collective Gelitin is famed for its participatory works and events, which have followed somewhat in the tradition of Relational Aesthetics.

Not quite for children, Boring Island recounts the collective's 30-day adventure on a small island: "there were animals, hunger, wind, waves, the sun blazed, it was stormy, and endlessly boring."
