Der Lauf Der Dinge (The Way Things Go)

SCREEN: FISCHLI AND WEISS presents Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s celebrated 1987 video The Way Things GoFrom 1979 until Weiss’s death in 2012, the artists worked collaboratively to produce a body of work spanning film, sculpture, installation, photography, and works on paper. This video captures a well-orchestrated sequence in which everyday materials (plastic bags, tires, balloons, candles) are set in motion to create a Rube Goldberg machine-like domino effect where simple tasks are executed by elaborate and unnecessary series of events. Fischli and Weiss unravel a notion of progress tied to efficiency and embrace the absurd and unruly as essential values of daily life.
