Title

Forum Vogelsang Banana

Description

This project started as a cooperation with Coop Himmelb(l)au: the idea was to fill up the consisting building of the so called Adlerhof with reinforced concrete and build new rooms within the huge banana, that should be arranged above that “Sarkophag”. The criticism in this project lies exactly in the relationship with the context and with the place itself: Vogelsang, indeed, once called Ordernsburg, was built from 1934 to 1936, as a former training institution for young party members of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP). The artist himself underlined the historical references, which are also summarised at the official page.
Erwin Wurm declared that the project has been officially refused for formal reasons.
