David Horvitz Interview by Regine Ehleiter

One week before the open­ing of his solo exhib­i­tion ‘At Night They Leave Their Cen­tury I met Dav­id Hor­vitz at Chert in Ber­lin. Over cup of green tea and some schnapps we dis­cussed his plans to install an under­ground gal­lery inside Chert, best ways to syn­chron­ize slide pro­ject­ors and food mar­kets in Riga, where we had first met at an open­ing some months ago.

More than 300 zines from all over the world were shown in a spe­cially designed exhib­i­tion archi­tec­ture, developed by stu­dents of the Academy of Visu­al Arts Leipzig (Class for Sys­tem Design).
