“Travelling in an art object to various art objects turns the work of art into a completed work of art“.
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 itself.
Travelling to the historic places of the Grand Tour as well as to its epoche making and contemporary buildings and artworks to complete the historical Grand Tour Route.

The art Mercedes is put on public display by eight of the most important museums in the world.
At the end of the tour the work of art shall support children, who grow up in an environment of war, poverty and violence.
All earnings created during the course of the visionary Grand Tour and the sale of the work of art will be donated to charities which aim at ending the recruitment and the use of child soldiers and work for their rehabilitation.
