“If Henry Ford had Asked the People what they Wanted” Max Haarich, 2021
Henry Ford once said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”. As we all know, Henry did not ask the people. But what if he had just done that? What if he had listened to the people’s wishes? What if he had invested in the bioengineering of superfast horses? Maybe even with wings? How different could our world look today? How different could it still become?
The artwork applies this idea to the City of Munich, where the artist lives, and where one of the world’s biggest car manufacturers has its headquarter. This speculative piece was created during the MunichNFT hackathon and has been minted as an NFT.
