Up against the wall, art lovers

Functional art sometimes is as alluring as just-look-at-it art. This exhibition in Dresden, Germany of artist Hannes Broecker's work is such a thing.

Broecker hung flat, glass containers with a variety of cocktails in the exhibition space. As the night progressed, the levels of the multi-coloured infusions diminished as visitors took advantage of the spigots at the bottom of each piece. By the end of the event, reports Andrew J. Weiner of the Australian site The Cool Hunter, "the art itself ran dry, and empty drinking glasses were returned to where they were originally placed" -- in an artistic arrangement on the floor near the wall mountings.
