Antropomorphe Form, model for the Swiss Art Award 2019

Anthropomorphe Form, an installation produced by an interdisciplinary team led by Edelaar Mosayebi Inderbitzin Architekten and Fabian Bircher, explores the potentials of an architectural space that moves and interacts with people. Its anthropomorphic qualities do not refer to an ideal image of an imaginary individual, but rather to the behaviour of a real collective.

The installation thematises an architecture of the Second Modern Age in which things and phenomena can no longer be calculated or follow a simple relationship of cause and effect, but are rather contradictory, hybrid, and complex. Every action produces a reaction that is difficult to predict. The rational conditions the irrational, and the concept demands a narrative.
