American conceptual artist & philosopher Adrian Piper presents her first solo exhibition in Germany, at Berlin’s leading contemporary institution Hamburger Bahnhof.

‘The Probable Trust Registry: The Rules of the Game #1-3’ is both an installation and group participatory project, presenting three identical, golden reception desks that are placed before grey, ceiling-high walls in the historic hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof.

The installation allows museum visitors to sign a contract with themselves at each desk and voluntarily commit to align his or her future deeds with ethical principles such as honesty and reliability. All entries are collected in a digital registry, forming a community of people who are likely to be trustworthy in the future. It is a pivotal look at the foundations of interpersonal relations and raises philosophical as well as quite practical questions regarding democratic processes and individual responsibility.

It does not only call on the visitors to make a personal declaration, but also urges us to think about our actions and the consequences they entail on political, economic, and social level.

‘The Probable Trust Registry: The Rules of the Game #1-3’ is on view from 24 February to 3rd September, 2017.
