The starting point for this project was the work Haus, which Fischli/Weiss made from wood and Plexiglas and exhibited at Skulptur Projekte in Münster in 1987. Based on an original model by the artists as well as plans and pictures, the Haus was produced anew in 2016 in cooperation with the Kunstgiesserei St.Gallen and its subsidiary St.Gallen Sculpture Production Shanghai. The individual components were cast in aluminum and rounded of with locksmith work in aluminum sheet metal. Peter Fischli executed the painting with mineral paint, and panes of glass for the window façade were then installed. The newly produced Haus received visitors and passersby in front of the Guggenheim Museum in New York on the occasion of the big Fischli/Weiss retrospective there in 2016.
