I wonder what is going on upstairs | 2005 | One day performance at Kunstmuseum Basel

I wonder what is going on upstairs

I wonder what Is going on upstairs is a performance which consists of inviting the Kunstmuseum Basel visitors to go on the crane of a boom truck, and look through the museum's second floor windows from their swinging position. This performance video is about exploring the discourse of art perception by creating a physically and figuratively unusual situation for art viewing. The visitor's awkward position on a truck outside the windows of a museum, places him at the boundaries of two territories. The essential part of this project becomes the stimulation of the museumgoer, and his level of interaction with the process.
