Yes, i mean I am still thinking about it and locally the relationship between what I have worked on and the audience is probably not clearly definable. And I guess this is the way it should be. But of course I have still made some, let’s say, a kind of a platform of what I think will happen. And maybe something different will happen as it is often the case. But I think if we look at the project I have done a kind of a shape, which I think looks like a very beautiful car, and I have covered this with ice or have used ice in defining the shape. This means that the car is at this point at least frozen and frozen of course is like kind of suspended, it doesn’t move, it’s like kind of caught. It’s not necessarily caught in time, as ice is very ephemeral and it is very beautiful I think, but it is caught in the sense that it is very fragile. It has almost like a fragile skin. It shows its vulnerability by its dependence to its environment. It is a highly sensitive surface you can say: ice. Being highly sensitive like this, the car obviously has to stand in a highly manicured space, a frozen space or a freezer or a frozen room and what happens I think is that when you have a room, a fairly domestically sized room, the size of big garage almost, which is minus 10 degrees and you have people coming into this room, you instantly have the reaction that people start to freeze logically. And what then happens, the next thing is you have people say: “Oh it’s really cold here” Aha, the car is frozen, that is why it is so cold otherwise it would melt, the environment has been created to fit the car, but not the person. So you need to reevaluate the way you move, you start to readdress the kind of economizing with your own energy. A body has a certain amount of energy, if you don’t eat and drink for a little while the energy runs out and you will collapse and you will die eventually. Just like a car and it has a quite frank relationship with energy. So in this case I transferred the kind of relationship with energy from the optic from the car which in this point is standing still to the person who is moving around. So movement and rationalizing your body energy, because you start to stand in a different way, you put your arm less out because the heat tends to go away from your body more. Probably you embrace yourself and you economize the time and the kind of exposure you want to give the body to the cold. So there is a sudden, I think, and for me very interesting, thing happening, that is the fact that the environmental sense of responsibility shifts from the car to the body. The audience is everything, in the sense that the audience is the co-producer of the work or kind of the carrier of the meaning into the world. I don’t necessarily see my work as being, how should I say it, capable of anything if there is not a person who engages in it. If there is an engagement and my work is somewhat successful it will have consequences. I strongly believe that. I don’t think this I just the case for me, I think this is the nature of art altogether. I do think that art can change things, but I doubt that art can change the world, but I do think that art a kind of cause and effect placed in the world. So that means that art is about the world in a way that is about the causal nature of the world. So art is not like a mirror, a mirror that you hold up and see the world in a different light or something like that, like one has proclaimed art to be, no no, art can n

I won’t tell this to them as they are screwing it together more and more. My first impression is very good. Compared to the museum where it was exhibited before, the car looks more sensible. In my studio it’s no longer so confident. Berlin. Studio Eliasson. Olafur Eliasson with a BMW staff member at the BMW H2R. Various shots. Berlin.

First of all we are extremely happy to have Olafur Eliasson here at the Pinakothek der Moderne. We are proud because we do know he is one of the great artists of our time. He had been presented in the major museums around the world, in the Tate Modern, in the Museum of Modern Art. So to come here to the Pinakothek der Moderne is just a wonderful occasion for us. We will present him as one of the great artists of our time The art car so far were used as, like pictures, because the painters and the artists who made these cars applied their paint directly on the car. They used BMWs almost like a canvas producing wonderful images out of that. Olafur is doing something totally different in using the ice, he is producing a sculpture. The sculpture, the piece of design, the piece of technology and the ice together are an unit, and a wonderful unit, this is really a piece of sculpture which he is producing. Unfortunately a sculpture which can’t be moved, but it’s a wonderful experience to watch, to be present in together with the sculpture.

Modern art has always to do with cross over, going beyond boarders. The boarders between art and design has been in discussion since so long. And this is the concept of the Pinakothek der Moderne indeed - to show art, architecture and design under one roof and what it is more equal balanced without hierarchies. And crossing boarders debating hierarchies had been one of the subjects of Olafur Eliasson from the beginning. You can see that very clearly with the art car, that’s why it is so interesting for us. Die Neue Sammlung is one of the leading design museums of the world and the Eliasson installation takes place here in our foyer on the big staircase, but the car mind you is not a work of design any more, it’s an art car, detached from the claim to be useful, functional or technical. It does not aim to be practical. I think it is very exciting to this piece of art in the context of design in the background of our permanent collection. With this installation Eliasson gives a new meaning to all this design objects. They get a different value, a different iconographic. It is kind of a widened concept of design. You see them with a new eye, but his car means a widened concept of art as well and that is what a modern museum is about. I am sure it will be most fascinating for our visitors. Without the engagement of BMW an installation with this art car of Olafur Eliasson, it wouldn’t be possible.

I am crazy for beauty and speed. Therefore I became an auctioneer that means I am leading auctions under fair conditions for the big contemporary sales. Then I started to participate in rallies, little races, then more important rallies. Then one day in a context based on cars, meaning the oil crisis, I said to myself: One has to perform a big act of communication, a heroic act, and connect my two passions by letting my car be painted from big masters of contemporary art. However I didn’t have a car. So I started to get in contact with the French leading car manufacturers. But they never really responded to my proposal, I think because there was possibly a lack of cultural understanding. One day I met coincidentally Jean Todd on the streets. Back in the days he was a Rally driver, indeed promising, with a strong personality. I told him about my disappointment that I couldn’t find a car for the realizing my project. And he said to me: Maybe I know somebody who can understand you. It’s Jochen Neerpasch, who is leading the motor sport competitions. His wife is a gallery owner. And he will very well understand, he knows who Calder is etc. I was satisfied with this because BMW enjoyed good prestige in the car industry and at that time also on the racing course. So we went to Jean Todd and we called Neerpasch who said to us: I don’t have car, it’s in the USA. But anyway he wanted to think about it for a moment. We gave him fifteen minutes. He probably called Dr. Avenarius who was leading the communication department, an outstanding man. And he called back and said: Well, we are doing one! That was the condition. The project looked like that: I provided the artist and BMW the car. By doing that the operation was supposed to stay clean, if you can put it that way, the artistic piece of work should not be messed up by sponsoring. So BMW was in charge of the whole maintenance, but also for the whole effort, the palace, because during the week of the races we lived with all the mechanics, the preparation of the car etc. I then initiated the car, for sure also because of the high recognition value of this idea. The first four art cars I engaged at races, not BMW.
