Ars Moriendi

Participants wanted for digital sculpture in public space by Gregor Schneider on the themes of "Farewell" and "Dying".

Preparations for ARS MORIENDI begin immediately.

What do the participants have to do?

  • The participants choose a location in the city center of Munich
  • Munich where they would like to have their virtual figure placed.
  • In order to be able to create the virtual figure on the computer, all participants must have their photo taken. The photos will be taken in a Munich photo studio, to which the participants will travel independently if possible. The photography process only takes a few seconds. The appointments will take place on various days in summer 2024. An appointment will be made in advance.
  • In addition, a 1-minute audio recording of the participants will be made during the photo session, which will be played back later when viewing the virtual figure with the smartphone. The content of the personal message can be a general piece of advice for younger generations or an explanation of why the figure is currently at this location.
