Gifts Make Friends, with Jonas Etter

multimedia installation: video animation, sound, plasticine stones, text; 2024

Gifts Make Friends was a collaboration with Jonas Etter around the idea of reciprocity. Departing from the history of the exhibition space as an old ticket office, we were interested in the degrees of reciprocity that shape the economic and social relationships between two people: from the impersonal transaction between customer and employee at a ticket counter to the creative exchange between friends who conceive an exhibition together.
