(Small Questions Big Questions
3 films by Peter Fischli & David Weiss)
Installation of three films by the artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss.

Der Lauf der Dinge (The Way Things Go 1986-7) one of the most celebrated films of our time since its first appearance in Documenta 8 in Kassel, follows the precarious life of objects in a sequence of compelling, dramatic and hilarious events orchestrated by the artists in their studio. 

In Der geringste Widerstand (The Point of Least Resistance 1980-1) and Der Rechte Weg (The Right Way 1982-3) Fischli and Weiss star as the Rat and the Bear wandering in the Swiss Alps and in the freeways and art galleries of Los Angeles. Reflecting on issues small and large the two artists in costume talk about life, nature, art, money, truth, the good and the beautiful. 

The work of Fischli and Weiss has been exhibited at major museums and biennials around the world. The artists represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennale in 1995 and 2003. They also took part in Documenta 8 (1987) and 10 (1997). In 2006 Tate Modern presented a comprehensive career retrospective, Flowers and Questions, which traveled to the Kunsthaus Zurich and the Deichtorhallen Hamburg. More recently, they have had exhibitions at the Art institute of Chicago (2011) and the Serpentine Gallery, London (2013). 
David Weiss died in 2012. Peter Fischli lives and works in Zurich.
