Beat presented a showcase exhibition entitled “The Milka Meditation Hall” in MoCA Pavilion. His research engages with the idea of using westerner codes in oriental culture, and therefore, decided to work with Milka products. He created a meditation box that the audience can use for meditation. They can be concurrently in complete privacy and publicly inside an art exhibition. Along with the painted walls, and carpeted floors the space will be welcoming to both reflective and selfie practices.
