  • Waschgang

For the Installation, Waschgang, the Old Weimar Slaughterhouse (Alte Schlachthof Weimar) serves as the backdrop to an art project: ninety worn, freshly-washed, white pieces of clothing were hung between the walls of the ruins in 20 meter length – from everyday to professional clothing. This is how a “wash cycle” developed. Every day, each piece of laundry was coated in a performance with Persil Spray, in order to create a fresh fragrance. The clotheslines were, in addition, brought to eye-level, such that every visitor had to stop to come to the next section between two lines. After three days, the clothes, now dirty again, were delivered back to the Caritas and Weimar Tafel.
