Martin Kohout’s Gotthard anniversary @ Exile, Jun 13

9 June 2014

Artist Martin Kohout is celebrating the one-year anniversary of Gotthard, a project for which he ran the distance of Switzerland’s Gotthard Road Tunnel at Berlin’s Exile, June 13.

The almost 17-kilometre tunnel is the third longest in the world, weaving through the Lepontine Alps and connecting to the Italian and German-speaking regions of the country. Taking advantage of the tunnel’s temporary closing for maintenance, Kohout ran the distance of this architectural masterpiece.

Kohout will also be using the opportunity to launch the latest of his TLTRPreß publications Sleep Cures Sleepiness,  also responsible for 2012’s brilliant Linear Manual.

See the Exile project list page for event details, or visit Kohout’s website for more information about the original project. **
