The youth hostel goes on a journey

Video Installation

In 2027 the Swiss Youth Hostel in Lucerne will move to a new location. An entertaining riddle consisting of abstract murals and four short videos lets the visitor ponder where the journey will go. A recurring, shrill ringing telephone eventually leads the visitor into the old telephone booth of the youth hostel, where the last video solves the riddle and reveals the future location of the new youth hostel.
