Der Lauf der Dinge

About Peter Fischli & David Weiss

Peter Fischli and David Weiss collaborated on projects that variously combined, rearranged, and manipulated quotidian experiences into unexpected configurations across mediums. Executed in sculpture, film, and photography—and combinations thereof—the duo's work conveniently and playfully avoided any distinction between high and low art and materials. Their practice is best known—and perhaps best exemplified—by the film The Way Things Go (1987), for which the pair orchestrated a series of improbable Rube Goldberg-esque arrangements of household objects and studio detritus, documenting the mechanisms in their whimsical unfolding.
