Olympia. The real-time disintegration into ruins of the Berlin Olympic stadium over the course of a thousand years

01.06. - 22.10.2017

Stone by stone, David Claerbout has digitally reconstructed the imposing Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Since March 2016 the monumental building is subject to its disintegration in real time. The Belgian artist precisely calculated an aging process as it would transpire over the next thousand years. This temporal dimension of the project - extending over a millennium! - exceeds the human sense of time by far.
