Ackertribes

Installation, Video, 10 min, 2005

"Through their detective-like investigation, Mohr / Lockemann examine the undeveloped properties on the Ackerstraße. They also visit shops, gather ideas and collect objects, for example stones. The video documents their research and transforms  the results of their exploration into an exhibition." (Peter Funken)
The work deals with the peculiarities of the Ackerstraße in Berlin Mitte. Shops adorn themselves with exhibition possibilities and artistry. One can find philosophical aphorisms and action instructions in shop windows and on house walls. Meaningful questions crop up again and again, sometimes incidentally as graffiti, but often as deliberately used sales strategy.
