Michael Pinsky

In his installation THE FINAL BID, Michael Pinsky questions the topic of sustainability and the inflationary use of the term.

British artist Michael Pinsky makes this the starting point for his processual installation The Final Bid, which he will be premiering at the Draiflessen Collection. What makes up the largest portion of our average greenhouse gas emissions here in Germany is not air travel, energy consumption, or food, but — at about 4 tons per person — the consumption of manufactured goods such as furniture, clothing, and appliances. In a playful way, Pinsky invites people to take an active step and interrupt the never-ending flow of new goods in a symbolic action.


We met the British artist at the Draiflessen Collection for an interview and did document the exhibition.
