About ‘Recovery of discovery’
In 2011, French artist Cyprien Gaillard built a pyramid out of 72.000 bottles of beer at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. Participants were free to enter and consume as much as the Turkish beer Efes as they wanted. The work refers to “the concept of displacement and a tourist colonialism” of previously artifacts that were relocated from other countries to Berlin.
