A collaboration with BASECAMP
To pack – Individual freedom in the collective process (film)
The artist group Microwesten invited us (art group Basecamp) to participate in a group exhibition. The theme was ”Westpakete” a german topic from the cold war period. People from west germany sent packages filled with food, clothes, toys and family pictures – all the good things from the ”west”. In east germany the parcels was eagerly awaited. Packages filled with hopes and coloured dreams of a better life.
Basecamp made a film about how to make an art work together and send it to artist friends of another country. Hopefully they will enjoy the ”northpakete” as much as the osties* when they got a westpakete. *ost is German for east
