„Travelling in an art object to various art objects turns travelling into a work of art in itself“.
Travelling in an art object to art exhibitions in order to combine past and modernity of art history.
Following the original idea of the historic Grand Tour when travelling was a work of art in itself.
Travelling to the historic places of the Grand Tour as well as to its epoche making and contemporary buildings and artworks.
The special case:
On my way, I made a stop at the most important exhibitions of contemporary art in 2007 as well as at the world’s largest motor exhibition. It occurs only once in 10 years, that the three world famous art exhibitions take place in the same year.
documenta 12 – skulptur projekte münster 07 – 52. Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte de La Biennale di Venezia
The art Mercedes is the first art object to be displayed at all these famous exhibitions, thus establishing a link between these important exhibitions of modern art.
The modern Grand Tour * extends over approximately 2500 km and takes me through Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
*detailed information can be found on Mercedes Trilogy
