Yvonne Dröge Wendel (Germany, 1961) is concerned with the relationship between people and objects, and the quest for challenging new ways of relating to things. She sets up experimental encounters, and aims to capture what it is that objects actually do. ‘Thing Tank’ is design for a building in public space. It is literally a tank, encouraging visitors to get actively involved in thinking about the future of things. In her lecture, Dröge Wendel will talk about how the piece came into being.
