The annual rail trolley race in Basel is a cult event that demands both creativity and muscle power from its participants. Winning is not the point. On view is a strangely competitive but mesmerising art performance during which all manner of teams compete on the railroad tracks with self-made vehicles. Even city art museums like Museum Tinguely and Kunstmuseum Basel enter their own teams. Speed is not the only thing that is rewarded – besides the jury and audience prizes, an award is also given for the “best failure”. This book about the competitions of recent years includes a special augmented reality feature that transforms still images into videos on your smartphone.
