x-mal Mensch Stuhl


German artist Angie Hiesl has been creating a performance art piece called ‘x-mal Mensch Stuhl’ (x-times people chair) in various cities throughout Europe and South America since 1995. Senior citizens are perched on white chairs bolted to the façades of buildings, between 3 and 7 meters over the ground.

They perform everyday tasks such as reading the paper, knitting, and folding laundry, unfazed by the surprised passers-by staring up to them.
