2007. Mandla Reuter. INVITATION, 2005



in collaboration with Alexander Wolff

Central point of the work is the distribution of a set of keys to an one bedroom appartment in Warsaw to various people. As there are consisting as many keys as invitation cards, more or less 500 and there are about as many potential owners of place, the apartment looses it`s quality as a private housing and becomes a kind of public space as for example a museum could be. The apartment is equipped corresponding to its size for one to two persons.

Although the apartment was located in Warsaw, the project in whole was not based on a certain place, as the distribution and personal handout of the keys and invitation card was already an essential part of it and the owners of the keys could wander around with them anywhere with the knowledge having access to an apartment in Warsaw.
