2014

As part of the the ‘Festival of Future Nows’ at Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin.

 

An intervention in which I assumed the role of a time travelling Mies van der Rohe. Picture the following scenario: 1911, at the age of 25, Mies van der Rohe is given the opportunity to travel through time to the year 2014 in order to see what the future looks like. As the character of the young Mies van der Rohe in the year 2014 I remained present during the entire exhibition, walking around and continually interacting with people within my assumed personality.

 

 

This intervention was inspired by Mies van der Rohe, K-PAX and John Malkovich.
