172 questions on an indeterminate future; 947 archived answers to films, artworks, texts, web searches and expert conversations, various inanimate objects and forgotten memorabilia, a performance tool as archive, mobile research unit, exhibition architecture and a stage.
The second episode of Alles was ich habe arranges various and sundry archive materials into a walk-in landscape. As the lone protagonist, the viewer encounters the model of a world that has yet to take shape. Between questions, objects and notes, between audio guides and messages left, ever new dialogues unfold – mute conversations on how things can go on in the world as we knew it.
»We find ourselves in one of these multilayered, thought-through, theatrical installations of the duo of Bernhard Herborft and Melanie Mohren, which, in the form of a labyrinthine archive of written notes, voices and object collages, represents nothing less than a fundamental inventory of life,« writes Doris Meierhenrich in the Berliner Zeitung on Alles was ich habe #1 in the Sophiensaele, June 14, 2010
