A picture of an institute

Created as part of Heara 12 – Historical Comment (June 2014) Curated by: SalaManca

A picture of an institute is inspired by an historic photograph taken at the entrance of "Jesus Hilfe" upon the steps and main terrace of the building, and presents a present picture of this image. All the people who took part in initiating, rebuilding and operating the new Hansen Institute for design, media and technology, were asked to participate in a picture upon the same steps and terrace.

A reproduction recognises and appreciates the history of a place and time, and simultaneously signifies a moment in the present were all possibilities of the space may come alive.
