Red Alien

"Red Alien"  was a multi-media art installation by Ommo Will* on display in Lennestadt, Germany earlier this year.   The project told the story of an alien specimen recovered in the GDR, and eventually seized by the Soviets, sometime during the 50s.  A huge number of props and faux documents were used to build the narrative, everything from ancient clay idols to the titular alien carcass.  The Google translated version is over here.

*I'm relying on my very limited knowledge of German and Google Translate for that attribution.  My apologies for any errors brought on by my ignorance.

I'd love to see this. The paper work looks amazing! Too many galleries, not enough plane tickets.
