Missing Smoke Signals Create Confusion in Kassel

'Expiration Movement' is an installation by artist Daniel Knorr that lets rise white smoke on top of the historic tower 'Zwehrentum' in Kassel during documenta 14. This Monday though, no smoke could be seen engulfing the tower.

According to the organisers of the fair, the artificial smoke is only functioning on exhibition days in Athens, and since the exhibition was closed on Monday, no smoke was rising from the top.

After spotting the white smoke billowing from the tower of the Fridericianum Museum in Kassel for the first time at the beginnging of April, alarmed residents had called the fire department. Now, the absence of the white vapours caused confusion.

On April 8, 2017, smoke engulfed the tower fort he first time, inaugurating the exhibition opening of documenta 14 in Athens.

The smoke marks the duration of the exhibition in Athens and Kassel, it can be seen daily between 10 am–8 pm, for 163 days.
