Contribution to a performance with Prof. Felix Ensslin and a group of art students in the Heidelberger Kunstverein / 2012
The 13 stools were assembled in the Heidelberger Kunstverein by the 13 participants of the seminar and the performance. The installed chairs form a closed circle, but like the fact that a perfect circle is only a construction of geometry and mind, the stool circle remains just a symbol for the perfect unity of a group. This illusion only works as long as you sit in the circle alone: as soon as all thirteen people try to come in and sit down, the circle collapses in its single parts.
The theoretical background for the project was developed in group seminars dealing with topics like the relationship between individuals and society, communication and intermediation.
