the backdrop of increasing digitalisation, Noordkaap Taxi deals with
the significance of the automobile in the 21st century. The automobile,
once a synonym for technological progress, has now mainly become a
burden. The artists MAX DOVEY (UK), ABNER PREIS (NL) and JODI (NL) have
each taken a close look at the automobile from very different artistic
angles and developed performative taxi rides that will certainly change
your perception of Cologne.
JODI presents a unique moving piece of art specially developed for Noordkaap Taxi
in Cologne. With a digital diorama on your head, your senses will be
kidnapped for the duration of a short taxi ride. JODI’s
“VRTaxi”catapults you into populair digital culture with a Youtube footage overkill and Image Recognition at the car scrap yard.
“Cologne, what is your Mother’s Maiden Name” invites the audience to explore the past, present and future of Cologne and write new stories based on what they see.
