Circus

Institut Für Raumexperimente

DIE GROSSE WELTAUSSTELLUNG 2012, the world is not fair!

Commissioned by HAU, a pavilion was designed for the “Institut für Raumexperimente”. For the entire time-span of the exhibition in the balloon hall, we remodeled for this purpose an existing building at the former Tempelhof Airport. Under the title “Translation Acts”, students curated a variety of lectures, workshops, performances, and interventions in collaboration with the teaching staff.

The aim was to generate a dense cockfight arena-like presentation space; inside, fitting exactly to the existing hall, there are tribunes and outside either a larger circle or a mobile support structure can be found.
