Koki Tanaka, Provisional Studies: Workshop #7 How to Live Together and Sharing the Unknown, 2017 / burglars
In July 2017, this multi-media installation was damaged while on view at Skulptur Projekte Münster. Late in the night of July 31, an unidentified group of burglars broke into the local university building where the piece was being shown and stole a large amount of the piece’s technical equipment. The piece was temporarily put on hold while new equipment was collected.
The incident was being investigated as a “typical burglary,” as opposed to an intended act of “vandalism.”
