3) Input: How the box captures countries and regions, themes and persons, and then releases them again.
The first ART BOX “Amazones“ is dedicated to Iran. Art is the Iranian artists’ organ. For you can say more through art than through words. Many achieve this, and you can find a lively cultural scene in Iran. Art in Iran is about finding hidden ways to realise your projects. “Amazones“ appears in the form of a megaphone and picks up on the classic symbol of political and social uproar. Instead of speaking into the megaphone, the observer watches the film through a viewfinder, which is projected onto an interior display. Similar to a telescope or the observation slit of a “Burka”, it will be possible to observe the inaccessible and invisible. The observer becomes the silent propagandist behind the scene.
The second ART BOX features the younger Eastern Europe and deals especially with the Ukraine, Russia and Poland. The “Unzerstörbare wildflower“ (Indestructible wildflower) forms the basis of the dispute. The motive of the design is the Cheburashka, the Russian Olympic mascot of the Olympic winter games in Turin in 2006. We do not find any smuggler’s goods inside, but an implemented display, where you can watch a documentary movie about Russian Artists. To start the movie you have to pull a line, - comparable with the children’s musical clock. The sound for the movie comes out of the ears of the teddy bear.
4) Moral: What the box is worth and how you too can posses it.
