The installation begins with a time travel through the historical catalogs of the legendary Belgian artist Marcel Broodhaers; goes over to the complex and yet hardly comprehensible Mindmaps painted with blueberry juice by the Swiss artists and researcher George Steinmann in his photographs; Joseph Leung from Hong Kong shows the monumental national symbols of his country as fragile flowers disappearing in the wind; Austrian conceptualist Herbert Starek swims through the vague cartography of sounds and imaginary landscapes and finally Sena Başöz the artist from Istanbul is trying to catch the noisy unclear signals of present which are constantly being “erased”…
