Walhalla 2 is a monument that will have existed. A place that has become conceivable through the tendencies of the present - the speculative archaeology and reappraisal of a possible era. Between September and October, three fake, speculative, archaeological excavations took place in Thuringia, Hamburg and Berlin, where documents, remains, parts of ruins and evidence of a future Walhalla 2 monument were recovered by PARA INTERNATIONAL, an exploration company created specifically for this purpose. These traces and gaps and variants and evidences of a coming history, which becomes more probable with each day, the artists* have preconstructed together and created a work between Landscape Play / Fake Exhibition & immersive Installation.
