Time Mat­ters — A Videoin­stal­la­tion by Jan Kuck

West­see im West­park München
6. March 2021 – 14. March 2021
18:30 – 18:00

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.
