Non Guided Tour (2021)

Imagine being dropped on a virtual map, at a random point exactly 100km from Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. You find yourself on a small dirt road with only minimal indicators of how to get back. The challenge is to navigate back to n.b.k. one click at a time.

The piece is based on Tomas Schmit, Sanitas – 200 Theater Pieces from 1962:

β€œA bus carries the audience 100 km away. There the audience is deposited.”

Only, instead of being abandoned together with a bus full of fellow visitors, you are now abandoned in the comfort of your home on an online map. Walking is in street view with minimal markers and the challenge is to find your way back to Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in the center of Berlin.
