In the entrance area, Friedel had welcomed the guests at the beginning and then led them into the hall. In the background, a soundtrack was playing (with a babble of voices and distant piano sounds) that he had recorded himself in autumn at the Documenta in Kassel. As a participant, you really had the impression of being in the middle of a lively audience. At the "standing desk" he gave a speech and told about the whole process. Afterwards, everyone could fan out and have a look at the exhibits. One could go off on one's own, but one could also follow someone else directly, i.e. move around in pairs and remain in dialogue.
Since the exhibition was laid out like a maze - with crossroads and dead ends - you couldn't just scurry through quickly, of course, but needed time to make your way between the "walls" and walk along the picture frames "hanging" there. These were each linked to a work of art, so that the files opened up at these points for closer inspection.
And other locations opened up. Installations could be seen in a demolition house. Films were shown in the projection room. On the way, you also came across funny surprises - like carnivorous plants that snapped at you as you walked by, or elephant statues that boisterously trumpeted when you approached them. There was even a toilet whose door audibly slammed shut as soon as you entered or left it, and which - in contrast to its surroundings - was completely calm, a "quiet place". So there were always things to discover everywhere and it never got boring.
We sat in front of the screen until late at night and Friedel met old acquaintances again, but also lots of new people who came to the website by chance or by word of mouth. I assisted with technical complications and had the opportunity in between to listen to conversations and explanations about the pictures shown. In fact, at the end, one had the feeling of having had many real contacts and encounters, even with strangers, just like in an analogue exhibition.
