30. Nov - Save the Whales, ZHdK

Veli & Amos (but they haven't saved a single one yet!)

Whales are huge and we are only 2, we can't save them alone.

It's not only up to us, we have to do this together, we need to work with people, we need your support, therefore we want to deal with pop culture, brands and fundings to create a movement.

We want to see where the limits are, we are interested in dangerous, uncomfortable moments. Saving something or somebody is often very risky and raises questions about life and death.

Whales are the largest living beings of our time, they need space and freedom to survive, in our case the whales can be a metaphor for anything huge, lively, mindblowing and free.

Whales live in international waters, there are no national borders. We want to take local stories and questions around national boundries beyond to a global, international context.

We have already started to create art works, exhibitions, songs and videos dealing with the working title 'Lets save the Whales International'. The goal is to create a full length film, that connects our art work, personal story and impressions to a whole piece like in our last film 'Style Wars 2'. Again its gonna be an art film, we are not literally gonna fight for the whales.

There are going to be several attempts to save the whales in an artistic way, by creating spectacular situations and getting the attention of the mass. The project will also use the language of activism and demonstrations, to the extent where it becomes absurd at some point and implies to other problems in our world today. We want to interview a variety of famous people we are are interested in, from different disciplines. There answers will lead us to new questions and tasks and so on.
