Bonny Poon, My Mothers Masseur
Axel Petersén, The Tracks of my Tears
The exhibition is open until Friday the 13th. Today on Thursday the 12th there´s a special time for viewing: 5 - 7pm. Meeting point: ground floor, or just in any of the installations. After that we´re dealing with the very precaire situation of the many layers in charge of the house, and figure out how to vanish. Perhaps we just open up a dimension portal like in "Time Bandits" and disappear. Thanks to all the artists. Watch out for the catalogue.
A number to call in case you get lost: +49 17662006867

Thanks for making it come true on Friday, it was a maze where the visitors wandered up and down between the 35th and 27th floor to see the artworks, which turned out to have several connections in between them as the night settled in. More pictures to come, but rather take the opportunity to take the route on site until the 13th of August. See the flyer for contact info, opening times Monday - Friday 14.00-18.00.

We climbed up, until I finally saw through a round opening the beauteous things which Heaven holds. And there we came out to see, once more, the stars. - Dante Alighieri
Last days has seen numerous interventions, adjustments, and connections between the exhibited artworks. It is with great excitement that we invite you tonight, to reach 100 meters up into the AfE-Turm to see the first installations. Floorplans will be availible at the ground floor.

The construction of the AfE-Turm started in 1967/68. Suddenly there was a financial crisis, and nothing happened for several years. On its spot was just a hole full of garbage. In 1978 it was ready. So they asked King David to play on his harp, and when that haunting music drifted out of the Garden and reached the Rabbi of Riminov, he followed after it as if in a trance, and in this way he was lured inside at last.
