Do it Yourself Facade. Berlin.

autoR (2010) by Carsten Nicolai is the third project realized by the Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin on its facade. autoR is conceived as a self-organizing process. Visitors actively contribute to the design of the facade by individually applying stickers designed by the artist.

An artwork in phases: first, zero, a blank facade - a contrast to the numerous advertisement images at the Schloßplatz, second, the collective application of the stickers.

A facade of shared authorship: the artist provides the tools and visitors take over the role of the designer.
