The Ten Commandments

20-minute video about the art project „The Ten Commandments“

Tea Mäkipää has issued Ten Commandmends of the 20th century – ten commandments that do not deal with human relations anymore but with another fundamental problem: they deal with a sustainable management of the environment and our natural resources. Tea Mäkipää was invited with the project to the biennial to Sharjah. And as her first commandment goes: “Thou shalt not fly” the artist travelled from her hometown Weimar by train, but and ship to the United Arab Emirates. Via Slovenia, Turkey and Iran, and together with her husband, the owner of the ACC-gallery Frank Motz.
