Steven Emmanuel – The Good Life

This summer of 2014 he will be living off the land at the Zollverein UNESCO-World Heritage Site as part of the project ‘The Good life’. During a four week period he will attempt to live without consuming gas or electricity, essentially living off the grid: Foraging, collecting water, building a shelter and living within a survival situation. Equipped with a minimum of tools, he will have to learn to utilize and understand his immediate environment to achieve a sustainable level of autonomy and survival. The work is partly a performance, partly an experiment, partly a kind of training exercise (in lieu of a worst-case-scenario situation) and on some levels a cri de coeur.

Steven Emmanuel, born 1982 in North Wales, England, lives and works in Nürnberg and London and is RWE fellow.

We mourn our friend and benefactor, the artist and philosopher Prince Rudolf zur Lippe, who died on 6 September 2019.

He made thoughts dance and people move.

During the exhibition in Erfurt, which shows works from the cycle "Learning from the Birds" in the church of the Augustinian monastery, he wanted to talk to us about it and how it is linked to Goethe and Alexander von Humboldt.

We will miss him greatly, not only there.
