For Art/Nature – Artistic Interventions IV Assaf Gruber inspects ways of representation of scientific and historical facts or presumptions, which are deeply rooted in desires and ambitions of the individuals of one’s era. Daphne, the taxidermist, meets British writer Catherine, who is researching her new novel at the museum’s archives. The chance encounter sparks in a rather unusual communication.
Premiered at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin.
We were happy to realise the reshoot of „Karl’s Perfect Day“, a poetic journey through an imaginary perfect day of Swedish artist Karl Holmquist. Finding happiness in the small things of everyday life in Berlin, Karl shows us his perfect blend of life and art.

VERTICAL HORIZON is situated “after the future,” as Franco Berardi puts it, when utopian visions have come to an end.

Shown at La Biennale di Venezia 2017.
