Fischli and Weiss adapted objects and situations from everyday life and placed them in an artistic context—often using humour and irony. Wurstserie (1979) was Fischli and Weiss’s first collaborative project, setting the tone for their future work. In the series, ordinary sausages and slices of sausages became the protagonists of scenarios, alluding to situations such as cars in a traffic accident in an urban setting, layers of carpets and other situations. By the end of the 1980s, the duo had expanded their repertoire to embrace an iconography of the incidental, creating deadpan photographs of kitsch tourist attractions and airports around the world.
