At Bern’s Stadtgalerie, expectations for WORM’s art talks were upended by a whimsical, participatory project: audience members enjoyed movies from the watery beds of two inflatable swimming pools. At the stroke of midnight, participants were challenged to an underwater breath-holding competition, a playful reminder of childhood antics.
The silliness of life is triggered by a simple task: hold your breath.
Luftanhalten, weil man nicht immer Kunst atmen will.
The event took place on July 13, 2013 in the courtyard of the art center Progr in Bern, Switzerland.
