Large-format Photo-Documentation of a unique Art Happening

Augmented Reality: the App «PRIMO Print in Motion» streams all the printed film stills as videos to your smartphone

With essays by Thilo Mangold, Sandra Beate Reimann and Benedikt Wyss

The annual rail trolley race in Basel is a cult event demanding creativity and muscle power, and where winning is subordinate. What we see is a strangely-competitive art performance during which artists with children, journalists with engineers and hostesses with dancers vie on railroad tracks. Art museums such as Museum Tinguely or the Kunstmuseum Basel enter their home-made vehicles. Speed is not the only thing that is rewarded – in addition to the Jury and Audience prize, an award is also given for the «best failure».

This publication contains the best images from recent years and a special augmented reality feature: an App that streams all the printed film still to a smartphone as videos. The app PRIMO Print in Motion can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

«What an amazingly beautiful mode of locomotion!» Sophie Krauss, actress, chairwoman of the 2018 Jury
