The Future of Art: A Camp – Or: How to Bury the White Man? continues Erik Niedling’s A Pyramid for Me, a 2014 exhibition at Haus am Lützowplatz (HaL). Niedling’s project, now ongoing for a total of seven years, is about the attempt to build Pyramid Mountain, a concept developed by author Ingo Niermann and then transferred to Erik Niedling. It is an at least 200-meters-tall pyramid that will be carved out of a mountain and then buried under the excavated debris. Niedling invites interested visitors and experts from the fields of art, politics and science to HaL to discuss ideas for realizing Pyramid Mountain. He uses filmed documentation of the discussions to produce a web series tied to The Future of Art (2010), a documentary film showing Ingo Niermann and Niedling meeting key art world figures for advice on how to attain decades-long success as an artist.
