Measuring the Universe
Pinakothek der Moderne – Muenchen
3.6.2022 – 25.9.2022
For the first time in 15 years, a performance by the artist Roman Ondak (*1966) can be experienced again, which was created especially for the Pinakothek der Moderne. The concept of “Measuring the Universe” (“Das Universum vermessen”) is simple: the height of the museum visitors is recorded on the wall – in the way parents mark the growth of their children to give them a sense of the dimension of time. An everyday, actually private action becomes the center of attention and is transformed into a public and collective action. During the exhibition period, a drawing is created on the wall that becomes denser and blacker. In the end, all the people will be present at the same time, although they will all have left as well.
