Munich Time Capsule

Public commission, “A Space Called Public” a project curated by Elmgreen and Dragset for the city of Munich, 2013-2113. In collaboration with Ivan Argote.

Munich residents were invited to send at no cost messages to be kept inside a stone for 100 years then exhibited in 2113 in the Munich City Hall.

Approximately 1000 messages containing all kind of material were received, including some messages from participating artists (Ed Ruscha, Elmgreen & Dragset, among others). All the messages were placed inside one rock in the garden of Munich’s cultural office, with a small plaque providing instructions for the year 2113. Messages will be kept secret until this time.
