Hannes Egger, Walking in Beuys Woods, 2018

For Walking in the Woods the museum interior is got up like an artificial wood. The public move among bare tree trunks, unaware they are being captured by photo-traps as used by hunters, concealed among the trees. This turns the tables, the visitors as prey, taking themselves for animals. In another part of the room pictures are projected of the spectator-prey, which triggers a process of awareness and a new pondering of the recent experience.
