an installation by Jan Peter Hammer, 2020
How did utopia become so alien? Why does the future look like the distant past?
Jan Peter Hammer’s work is on our anemic imagination and the different refusals of collective history either plagued by power differentials, exploitation, and militarism. For Die Balkone, he created a site-specific installation by using one of the elements of his earlier work, which marked his balcony as a temporary micro-nation.
