Dr. Gregor Jansen and Prof. Dr. Robert Fleck in conversation with Amit Goffer about the project Sleeping for Tomorrow AND #0.1, art, space and no-space, connecting with the world and you’re (and with you) on thoughts and plans for the future.
The project was displayed at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf between 29.03.2022 – 08.05.2022, where contributed recordings were shared by recording in the Kunsthalle and the world (via the website).
The parts that were recorded at the Kunsthalle can be heard now on the Bunker at Kunsthaus NRW Kornelimünster, Sculpture garden, Aachen, Germany, and through the project site, virtual experience.
At Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Amit Goffer presented a site-specific object made of thin aluminum bars and bent plastic for one person to enter. Located between the intimate and the unhindered space, an alternative way of communication was offered.
Via a button, the visitor’s voice could be recorded, and messages from all over the world were displayed at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf – significant moments can be shared both ways.
