1000 GESTALTEN

1000 GESTALTEN (“1,000 figures” in English) was a performance in which actors covered in grey, crusty clay moved silently and steadily through the city in a transfixed state. For the days leading up to July 5, these figures started appearing all over Hamburg, slowly growing in numbers until culminating in a giant formation during the G20 Summit.

DO YOU WANT THIS CAR?

Turkey protested officially to Germany on Tuesday that an artist had been allowed to set up an installation in central Berlin, apparently offering a car as a prize in exchange for killing world leaders including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The installation was set up outside the offices of Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Monday, comprising a Mercedes C-class car and banners with pictures of Erdogan, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman.

“Do you want this car? Kill dictatorship!” said the slogan.

The action was staged by the art collective Center for Political Beauty led bv Phillip Ruch, which has made several stunts in the past including displaying four tigers in the centre of Berlin to protest refugee policies.
