Interview with Robert Barta, artists: Robert Barta, Thomas Behling and Mineo Kato.

The common theme of the group exhibition at Kreuzberg Pavillon in Berlin is a surreal situation and well known story of Laika, ‘the first dog in space’, who reached the sky, but died from overheating within hours after the launch. The artists Mineo Kato, Thomas Behling and Robert Barta created works that deal with ‘the infinite’ – even though the installation was ‘temporarily’ available only during the opening reception. In this video, Robert Barta provides us with an introduction to the concept behind the exhibition.
