Ab jetzt reibt sich das TQW seinen Kren wieder selbst
A horseradish grater is about to take on a central role in TQW. It consists of a metal bracket and four grating surfaces. The metal bracket at the top end of the grater is there to support the left hand during grating, providing sufficient stability to the grater in the process. The horseradish symbolises the extract of thought. The origin of the horseradish is explained in the header of the accompanying poster; also, the artist always carries a horseradish root whenever they visit TQW. The institution supplies the horseradish graters. In the spirit of Marcel Duchamp: “Le célibataire broie son chocolat lui-même.”
