In the former Kebab shop named Munzur, Sebastian Rallo and I made an installation reflecting on our travels to the anti G8 demonstrations in Rostock, the Venice Biennale and the anti bush demonstration in Rome.
Through the installation we tried to share with the visitors our enthusiasm from the political experiences we participated in, but also the questions and dilemmas these kind of travels raise.
The instillation had both texts and sounds that we collected during our travels. We also created a video and museum like display. For obvious reasons the instillation was best experienced at the place but I will try to describe it for those who could not make it to Weimar.
Entering the Kebab shop, on the right we hung the manifestos of two groups we met at the anti G8 demonstrations that we felt close to them, the Hedonist International and the Rebel Clown Army. Between there manifest we hung earphones that your could hear: â€œBrigada Flores Magonâ€ from the Antifa organized Concert, Redlich (the camp where we stayed next to Rostock).
In the corner we placed the video “The Best Work of Art I Experienced This Summer”, that you can view here. Above the video on the light box is “Following the Powers Travel Menu” presenting how much the deal cost us.
To the left of that you can listen to an interview from the Venice Biennale where Sebastian talks With Exhibition Guard Margerita where she complains about the being a precarious worker, and to the interview I gave in Venice at WPS1 art radio boat. Also hanging in this corner is the a document explaining the Italian labor laws giving a deeper understanding to what Magerita was talking about.
On the other side of the shop there is an old display refrigerator where we presented artifacts belonging to the “art work”.
