The Anatta Experiment revolves around Monte Verità in Ascona, Switzerland. In the early 1900s, this magnetic hill served as a lodestone for spiritual rebellion, attracting anarchists, free-love advocates, Dadists, theosophists, psychoanalysts, and occultists, all rejecting an increasingly materialistic society. In the late summer of 2011, Porsager invited seven friends to Casa Anatta, Monte Verità’s principal building, in its final moments before undergoing major, irrevocable restoration. Anatta became the scene of a week-long vertical drop into tantric laws and processes normally obscured by the noise of productivity, ultimately finding its crux within Harald Szeemann’s archive and his puzzling Strukturmutter.
