David Claerbout: Olympia

David Claerbout: Olympia
Library Shelf Location 18.CLAE
Publication Date 2017

This publication documents the first iteration of Belgian artist David Claerbout's project Olympia, a digital simulation of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Conceived to last one thousand years, Claerbout's simulation uses real-time weather data to present the slow decay of the stadium over the coming millennium. Projected onto monumental screens in the Boiler House at the KINDL - Centre for Contemporary Art in Berlin from late summer 2016 to spring 2017, Olympia aims to exceed the human ability to imagine time, thus radically surpassing our own experience of the world.
