After “The Burning River,” the light art spectacle during last year’s MCBW, conceptual artist Jan Kuck now returns for MCBW 2021 with “Time Matters”, the first and only current live art event. The premiere is Saturday, March 6, starting at 6:30 p.m. over the Westsee lake in Munich’s Westpark.
In the video installation “Time Matters” by Jan Kuck and Miro Craemer, screens float above the water in the middle of the Westsee for video dance performance by Miro Craemer and texts by Jan Kuck. Art enthusiasts, families, strollers* are invited to marvel, dance along and send in their heartfelt wishes.
Jan Kuck will install the neon lettering TIME MATTERS in the middle of the West Lake in a total of three different sizes in such a way that the lettering is reflected in the water and creates a poetic-philosophical atmosphere through the repetition together with the water screen. Similar to the concept of “The Burning River”, visitors will be asked on site and digitally to enter their answers to the question “What would you change?” in an interactive app. The answers will be projected onto the water screen and each visitor will become part of the whole, both on- and offline.
Note: When planning a visit to the site, please keep in mind that the Google Maps integration of the app allows you to see in real time how many people are already on site. This makes it easier to avoid times with high visitor* traffic.
The event is sponsored by bayern design and the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
