Aleph

with Wie-Yi Lauw

Curated by: Fritz Balhaus
Weißensee Kunsthochschule, Berlin

One of the Academy buildings in Weißensee KHB used to be a chocolate factory that like many other  had a Wasserlöscher or cistern during the WWII to help to put down fires. Years later the art school students used the cistern as swimming-pool during the Summer but in recent years the constructions has been buried and slowly forgotten.

The project manifest through a sound installation the multilayer history of the place as in the story the Aleph written by Jorge Luis Borges where a sphere condense the complete universe.
