Ship of Tolerance
Kunsthaus Zug

A participatory project from Ilya & Emilia Kabakov
10th September to 13th October 2016

A ship for tolerance
A wooden ship, about 65 feet long and 18 feet wide, a mast height of 36 feet. Mounted on a raft, it will be shown on Lake Zug. The sail consists of 120 elements, each individually painted by children, young people and adults.
With the 'Ship of Tolerance' by Ilya and Emila Kabakov, the Kunsthaus Zug invites the public to deal with the issue of tolerance. Consequently, it makes an artistic contribution to a current social issue. The participation-project allows to experience tolerance and respect through common action with others.
For safety reasons the sails are hoisted with moderate wind conditions only.
