The artist Daniel Hauser, who uses all available media, seeks to describe public space as an economic space through his work in the Swiss artists collective RELAX, which was founded in 1997.
These two guests will develop their forum as a debate around GO-MIO, der Geheime Grund der Weltkultur, an installation that seeks to link cultural representatives and the widely scattered members of a family called Zollverein. The objective in this instance is to develop a reflection on regional economic changes by taking as a central element a roll invented in an inn in Essen. The artists have gathered, compiled and placed the relevant
material in a bread oven at the Go-Mio research center. In English and French.
