An art transport beyond Europe's bounderies in October 2015
From Munich to Kiev in three weeks: Munich artist traveling with the
"Export World Champion" Munich, September 2015 - On October 3, the
artist Christian Schnurer launches an expedition project from Munich
to Eastern Europe. End on October 23. Kiev, the route leads through
Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.
"My goal is the newly erected barriers to cross at Europe's borders
and to provide the means of artistic action, asking the burning
questions about nationalism and imperialism, military and capital,
freedom and homeland security - a quater century after taring down
the Wall." said Schnurer.
The centerpiece is the sculpture "Export World Champion", a Trabant
601 S built in 1985 with the dropping tank of a Russian jet as a roof
load. The artist declaered and packed the tank as an artwork and
publicly transports it on the roof rack. For the stages he invites
colleagues, curators and chance acquaintances from different
countries to ride with him and to speak about the current situation
in their homelands. His passangers show the artist outstanding places
of national identity to install the transported good infront of the
Endpoint of "Ostexport" will be Kiev. Where a cooperation project in
public space with the Ukrainian photographer Igor Gaidai will take
place. The German filmmaker Lorenz Kloska accompanied and documented
transportation. The Projekt is supported by the Goethe Institute Kiew.
The action is documented www.ostexport.eu continuously on the website.
