5th berlin biennial for contemporary art
KW Institute for Contemporary Art
Night event on June 10, 2008
Eight BMWs, the sponsor of the berlin biennial, drove in a slow perfect circle over a vacant lot of downtown real estate. “This Land Is Your Land”, sung by Woody Guthrie, was broadcast over their radios, remixed for an amusement ride sensation. The cars, fixed together in a carousel, circled like an auto display or a western wagon train. Every couple rounds the drivers stopped at the end of the song to drop-off and pick-up spectators. Just before dusk, a fire was lit inside the circle. More info
