Pavilion, HD Video, 5 min

The Pepsi Pavilion was a work that grew out of the idealism and social turbulence of the artistic avant-garde of the 1960s. It was an impressive temporary building commissioned by Pepsi-Cola and conceived by E.A.T. (Experiments in Art & Technology) for Expo 1970 in Osaka, Japan. Fabian Bechtle (re)installed a version of the Pepsi-Pavilion in the backyard of a middle class family house. Interested in the outside appearance/performance of this temporary specific pavilion-building, he questions the relevance of former trend-setting experiments/ideas in today’s society.
