Humboldt Volcano is exhibited at the Crossing Border | Border Crossing, International Festival of Intermedia in Hong Kong.
The Crossing Border | Border Crossing, International Festival of Intermedia investigates the inter-media and the interrelationship of the different art-forms:
“During the national days in October, the Festival celebrates festive idea and visual language that forges the nomadic borders (Deleuze’s) and blurs the definite borders between visual forms, categories, stereotypes or preconceived notions.”
Humboldt Volcano, a hybrid building and vertical garden, is such an ‘inter-media’, as it opens up and enables the appropriation of the Berlin Humboldt Forum by an international multicultural public.
In Hong Kong, Humboldt Volcano presents an avant-garde hybrid urban typology that integrates nature, culture and festivity in a vertical structure with a minimal ground occupation.
