The international Graz-based artists' group TONTO developed a series of projects called "Drilling into World" around 2012. Artists from the fields of comics, visual arts, literature, theatre and music took part in the events. In changing line-ups and experimental settings lasting several days, the intention was to compose in drawing, to draw in music and to play together. The open artistic process is a premise here.

In early events with many participants, rules were changed, diversions were taken, new, random paths were followed and "psychotic spaces" were created. The possibility of failure was implicit in this. Later, with fewer participants and a well-coordinated team, the process began to run smoothly.

In the exhibition, TONTO presents a selection of sheets from " Bohren in Welt II-VIII" (2015-2020). The participants were: Dimitra Charamandas, diceindustries, Frédéric Guille, Vera Hagemann, Simon Häußle, Igor Hofbauer, Max Höfler, Michael Jordan, Helmut Kaplan, Anja Korherr, Klaus Meßner, Renate Oblak, Kai Pfeiffer, Heidrun Primas, Bernhard Raschl, Léo Quiévreux, Johannes Schrettle, Johannes Stahl, Edda Strobl.
