Every week they moved 'WmK Mobil' to a different site, whether in a residential area, in front of a public building or on the Promenade. By presenting and discussing art in public places, Böhm and Saffer sought to establish a point of departure for conversations and interventions in the private realm. Their particular work and their activity as artists was thus to become a forum for discussing the domestic living conditions of individuals and families in Messestadt. They were concerned to enter into an intensive dialogue with residents in order to discover what place art occupies in Messestadt homes and how this influences attitudes to art in public places.
On the basis of their own practice Böhm and Saffer made suggestions for artistic interventions in people's homes. They installed these works free of charge and offered residents 'do it yourself' instruction.
Böhm and Saffer's project involved a second aspect -
the conception and realisation of an exhibition called
'Sammlung Messestadt Riem' (The Messestadt Riem Collection).
The artists visited residents, questioned them about
their views on art in the home and asked them to lend
a work from their own domestic surroundings to the exhibition.
'Sammlung Messestadt Riem' was opened to the public
at the end of June.
