Hoffentlich verliebe ich mich nicht in dich (“I hope I don’t fall in love with you”) is a project by the Zurich artist duo huber.huber — i.e. twin brothers Markus and Reto Huber — and Bern poet Jürg Halter. The two artists and the author have set their sights on uncovering unusual sides of ordinary goings-on in public space. Artists huber.huber took pictures at regular intervals, which poet Jürg Halter then worked into poetic and absurdly humorous vignettes about the photographs.
The photographic and literary components of Hoffentlich verliebe ich mich nicht in dich originally are interwoven into a delightful dialogue in which the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
