Der Lauf Der Dinge (The Way Things Go) featured on SCREEN at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles will feature Der Lauf Der Dinge (The Way Things Go) by Peter Fischli David Weiss as part of their online video program, SCREEN. From January 5 through February 15 the film will be available to stream for free on LA MOCA's website.

Der Lauf Der Dinge (The Way Things Go) (1987) documents a series of chain reactions among everyday objects. Filmed in an empty warehouse, the Rube Goldberg-like construction moves towards no apparent end with an elaborate sequence of rolling tires, spinning trash bags, and burning liquids.
