ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS

Julieta Aranda, Tjorg Douglas Beer, Tobias Bernstrup, Monica Bonvicini, Erró, Arfus Greenwood, Gregor Hildebrandt, Christian Jankowski, April Elizabeth Lamm, Annika Larsson, Sara Lunden, Josephine Meckseper, Klaus Mettig, Olaf Metzel, Christopher Miner, Eric B. Mitchell, Katharina Sieverding, Franz Stauffenberg, Costa Vece, Thomas Schütte, Agathe Snow and others

The installation ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS is positioned in the freight elevator of the building.

The Elevator will be turned into an installation, a mix between KOROVA MILKBAR, MERZBAU, Daniel Spoerri`s TOPOGRAPHY OF CHANCE and Louis Malle`s ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS.

Twenty people at a time can experience a 10 to 15 minutes fake-ride with the elevator.
The artists have developed works for the elevator.
Reference: Daniel Spoerri`s Topography of Chance is based on numbered leftovers on a breakfast table in Spoerri`s hotel room one morning in Paris. He creates a story by putting together anecdotes about the people behind the things having been left on the table. The story turns around the everyday life poetic in the banal little stories and shows the relation between Daniel Spoerri, Emmett Williams, Dieter Roth and Robert Filliou.

One could call it a monument to the beauty of simplicity, true poetry and friendship.
