“going through something” is an Augmented Reality scene of falling bodies and flowing typography, which transforms a printed magazine into a temporary stage. The project was initiated from the will to develop new forms of performance complying with the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and was created in collaboration with graphic designers Nina Massow and Insa Kühlcke-Schmoldt (Káschem Büro) as well as media artist Patrick Will.
