With the projekt Johannes Auer is reflecting the constant restauration of artworks and arguing that they should be given the right to a natural death, as well as our society should stop focusing so much on youth.
Interestingly enough this is done in three parts: 1. with a "manifest for the natural death of the work of art", which is using explicit references to the french artist Marcel Duchamp and the futuristic manifesto written by the italian futurist F.T Marinetti. 2. with some animation that follows the idea of the manifesto, which is for example questioning the reasons for the restauration of the Frauen Kirche in Dresden. 3. with an interactiv part which is collecting signatures for the rights of the artworks to a natural death. A description of the work can be found here
