HAZE – Eine Bezeugung in Rauch

Location: Parkplatz Nordring (Offenbach)

Performative Installation

The age of combustion is soon coming to an end. Before all traces of it disappear, the PARA Emission Evidence Center (PEEC) is securing evidence for the upcoming trial of humanity. In Offenbach am Main, the PEEC begins its work at the crime scene of the power plant. It sorts the ash, inspects the smoke, measures the haze. Suspicious emission events in history are reconstructed and recorded as a chain of evidence for the investigative inquiries of the future. Why were chimneys smoking on the horizon? Why were London residents walking with torches in 1952? What was being burnt? And for what purpose? The result is a psychogram of humanity as a smoke-producing being and a collection of ephemeral evidence: sacks of smoke, charcoal dust, burning greaves. Testimonies about oil fires, combustion engines, meat production, forest fires, heat and power plants. At a time when more and more evidence is being covered up, PARA invites the dead of tomorrow to testify in smoke.
