     The Discounter Carousel     Bochum-Gerthe, Germany 2005

The location of this intervention is a car park that is surrounded by five discounters.

We connect the trollies of these supermarkets to a construction that we have brought
with us. They are equipped with cushions made from plastic bags of the single discounters.
The latest leaflets are used as pennants.

Pushing the trollies keeps the carousel running. Along a monotone melody, coming from the
car speaker, the following sentences are repeated:

"The discounter-carousel is moving."
"The discounter-carousel makes you move."

Text by Dr. Christoph Kivelitz (in German)
