Berlin Ambush Votings
by Susanne Berkenheger
Who the heck are Andy and Hidenori?
is the New York artist Andy Deck. Hidenori
is Hidenori Watanave, an Associate Professor in Tokyo. As three complete strangers, the New York gallery Location One
asked us to develop a collaborative art project from afar. Topic: The 2008 US Presidential Election. We discussed it in the gallery's virtual residency blog.
Did Andy und Hidenori really say whatís written on the notices?
Well, nearly. Of course, they expressed themselves more differentiated. But these thoughts didnít fit on the paper.
Who tore off the strips?
People in Berlin Mitte
, the so-called creative center of Germany.
All of the notices were hanging in July and August 2008.
