‘Beautiful Steps, #2’ - Lang/Baumann


Sad to report, but this is not the exit stairs for the “council staff employed in planning, policy and strategy are most likely to lose their jobs in the Auckland council amalgamation” – of whom the number to be ejected could not be to many – or the point of departure for the health bureaucrats to be given the DCM, of whom the number is far too few.

No, the stairs are an “installation art” project attached to the Palais de Congrès, Biel, Switzerland for the 11th Swiss Sculpture Exhibition: Utopics, by “artists” Lang/Baumann [hat tip Duncan B.].

So images of slow swallow dives by pink-slip bearing bureaucrats are, unfortunately, only to be imagined.

  1. Just think of the compliance issues the council bureaucrats would have with this staircase!
