Duration
2015

As part of the GLOBALE, the artist HA Schult plans to drive from Paris to Peking in an electric car between June 19 and August 7, 2015. He is scheduled to make a stop at the ZKM on Sun. June 21. Since his car is equipped with web cameras, anyone interested will be able to follow his action in the ZKM_Subraum. The climax of his journey will be a press conference at a waterhole in the Gobi desert.
 
HA Schult will be travelling a total of 18.000 kilometers in 52 days, and be traveling through eight countries. During this culture-political art action he plans to take samples from rivers and lakes so as to create »biokinetic images«, and to question our contemporary socio-cultural action.
