Installation, Photography, Video

Joey Zimmermann, Irène Hug and Maja Weyermann (J. I. M.) initiate an artist group called die der art guten Freunde [those of the sort good friends]. The first event they organize is an exhibition entitled  Grüße aus Brest, Jim  [Greetings from Brest] (1997). The second event is organized by Irène Hug and Maja Weyermann – a panel discussion about love. In total the artist group die der art guten Freunde organises four events. The group's activities end in October 1998 with staged gambling evenings.  In the back room of a corner pub in Berlin, invitations are issued for four evenings to play blackjack and poker. The event is entitled Faites Vos Jeux [Make Your Games].
In 2013, fifteen years later, Maja Weyermann revisits the installation 
As Time Goes By, developed by the group for an exhibition in Den Haag in 1998, with a piece for a group exhibition in Berlin (der Zeit, als ich noch an Wunder glaubte, oder ich weiß, dass eines Tages ein Wunder geschehen wird).
