Mette Mustad you gave keys for my first big exhibition. This time you give keys for peace. We are all important keys. In between us all, show a willingness to cooperate and understand each other. As a sister as a brother. Everything is possible, we must just work for it! (Art in the back of Svea Bjornsson, Australia) The world has no limits if we don´t make them!
Wonderful key from Frøydis Rui Rahman my super enthusiastic and positive friend, making a huge difference for her environments. Conscious of not judging, being open minded and give out love-energy. Always giving some extra with a smile! ❤ http://www.froydis.no
The mystic key-holder Jan Even Evensen has given the project a Berlin key.
Thank you so much for thinking of the project when you where out traveling. Connecting old war enemies with keys :) We hope the key will open up double and lock no doors :-))
The Berlin key (also known as "Schließzwangschlüssel" (German) or "forced locking key" (English)) is a key for type of door lock. It was designed to force people to close and lock their doors (usually a main entrance door or gate leading into a common yard or tenement block). Its particularity comes from the fact that it has two key blades (the part which activates the bolt), one at each end of the key, rather than the usual single blade. After unlocking the lock, the key must be pushed all the way through the lock and retrieved on the other side of the door after it has been closed and locked again. The mechanism makes the retrieval of the key impossible when the door is unlocked. Also, locking an open door is usually not possible.
Invented by the Berliner locksmith Johann Schweiger, the Berlin key was massively produced by the Albert Kerfin & Co company starting in 1912. With the advent of more recent locking technologies, this kind of lock and key is becoming less common, but it can still be widely found in the tenement buildings of Berlin, Germany.
The key is subject of a book La Clé de Berlin by Science and Technology studies professor Bruno Latour.
Marit has collected a whole box of keys. Lots of history. Posing with history costume ;) Thank you Marit for all your work, and your great contribution as a human! Marit is a flight attendant always working for making people feel nice, connecting with people from all over the world, and she LOVES to communicate, and make connections in between people. First time I met her, she just came to me and told me "I know I have to get to know you, you are special, and I want you to meet someone". And there our adventure started ;) Big LOVE to you Marit!!! ❤
