idea: Paolo Moretto / Peter Kastner
design: Peter Kastner
In 1997 Paolo Moretto and Peter Kastner wrote the manifesto "Transindustriell" (Trans Industrial). In the same year they started with activities under the label Transindustriell (exhibitions called manifestations). In the following years a number of artists came together in different combinations and for different activities like exhibitions, manifestations, performances to form in a spontaneous way the idea of transindualism.
Already in the beginning Jan van Wissen had in his series of unwritten books the title "The raise and Fall of the Transindustrial Empire". And he was right. After a long time of agony Paolo Moretto and Peter Kastner decided to terminate TI: the funeral party took place in Hamburg in October 2009.
The main TI activities were:
the trans industrial manifesto
the trans industrial congress 1999 (TIC 99)
the trans industrial manifestations (TIM)
The Trans Industrial Toy Orchestra (TITO)
In October Paolo Moretto and Peter Kastner terminated TI with a nice funeral and with the help of some friends (Martina Freier, Barbara Pier, Ine Ophof, Jan van Wissen, Hildur, Gotthold). The funeral took place at Kronsaalsweg 30, the place were Atelierhaus30 was till 2003 (photo by Ine Ophof).
