Gift for the Zanzibar ministry of tourism…

Project for a hotel complex in Kichanga, Zanzibar. Our client, dr. Kühnhanss, a back out philosopher and writer, tried hard to gain a  permission for the development of a vacant plot situated in the south east of the island. For this reason, to convince him  and in special the ministry of Zanzibar Tourism, we had to work out a  plan with referential, comprehensible images and engaged all possible  clichés of ‘exotism’. Zanzibar is worldwide the most popular  honeymoon destination which meant that we had to generate a Heterotopia in it’s purest form.

Outstanding experience in communication was the way how to deal with difficult meetings with the public authorities. To grease discussions, we were said to hand over gifts. The client was as an example once informed that the minister of tourism desired intensely a water pump for her garden pond. As a result, besides project material, our luggage was full of bizarre items leading to kafkaesque discussions with the customs at the airport of Tanzania. Despite those precious donations, the project failed. Probably due to the size of the fountain pump as our disappointed minister perhaps once frequented Geneva during her holidays…?
