Herzog & de Meuron
16 October – 9 November 1990

Video installations in cooperation with Enrique Fontanilles, consisting of numerous old TV-sets, some of which were found in the streets of the quarter, mounted on the floor. They radiated flickering light to the ceiling in the lowered show room of the Col.legi. Some TV-sets were connected to VCRs which transmitted spontaneous intermittent recorded pictures of the 1988 Herzog & de Meuron Show in the Museum of Architecture in Basel. Others showed live video pictures of Herzog & de Meuron’s models that were being displayed in the upper exhibition levels.
