In his book Delirious New York (1978) Rem Koolhaas compared Coney Island and his legendary Luna Park (1903–1944) with a laboratory. An amusement park full of attractions as a lab for the world!
Wendelin Pressl is picking up this idea and transforming it into his Luna Park. With his artistic work, indexed by titles that sound like attractions. Waterworld, Rollercoaster, Casino, Astroland. In order to practise analysis. World observations, in his laboratory, now.
