Thank you Berlin, Vienna, Zurich — looking forward to Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Hamburg!!

EIN.KÜCHEN.BAU and the Freischwimmer Festival have a Christmas break — the tour continues at Mousonturm Frankfurt on 11 January 2011 — hope to see you there!!

It has been exciting to see our installation on three very different sites and to engage with the audience in each city!

From the review in Tages-Anzeiger Zurich:
Stove, sink, refridgerator, microwave, storage, work surfaces – everything economically arranged,  within just 4 square metres – this adds up to the dullest kitchen in the world, despite the cosy embroidery. The point of this optimization-orgy: the shelves are full of ready-made food cans. The festival motto of „Verwerte Dich!“ could not be embodied any clearer or more compact. The voice-over text fragments turn all this into a dense and direct  „discourse performance“.
