The exhibition "entlang" (alongside) presents 18 video installations by the Swiss artist Eric Hattan. In these works, created with the simplest technical tools and a minimum of effort, he observes or becomes involved in everyday life on his journeys through various continents. The projected short films invite viewers to accompany him as he roams through abandoned houses, deserted landscapes with bizarrely decomposing car wrecks and other relics of civilisation in the expanses of Iceland and Canada. A world full of surprises and overlooked peculiarities evolves. In some cases the artist "stages" minimal actions - for example when he unfolds packaging in front of the camera and reshapes it into small sculptures or observes objects that take on a life of their own.
