|Danil Akimov. "The Heartfelt", audio installation, 2007|
The installation offered to reveal the presence of ghosts and phantoms in the Kronprinz tower during the performance by means of immediate participation of the visitors. Through the open windows of the ground floor one could send a voice message thus "letting its spirit in" the tower. Each voice message supplemented the stylized sound landscape of the old tower, where invisible but audible ghosts live.... Audio-system specially designed and controlled by Danil Akimov allowed tuning a heart-to-heart talk with the ghostly realm of the tower Kronprinz.

|Yuki Higashino. "Searching for the absolute at Tower Kronprinz (after Flaubert)", poetic topography, 2007|
Project by Yuki Higashino is based on the idea that language determines the way of perceiving reality. That is why the author offered the Kaliningrad citizens to take part in a competition aimed at creation of an image of the tower Kronprinz by means of "most sophisticated, precise and beautiful language in the world". The texts that were selected by the jury, were printed on posters and hung all around the city of Kaliningrad. At the presentation on June 29 Yuki Higashino together with Sergey Mikhaylov - co-curator of the project - handed over the author's copies of the posters made in the technique of "serigraphy" to the winners of the literary competition. They were: Andrey Tozik, Oleg Blyablyas and Raisa Minakova.
|Yury Vasiliev. "Kronprinz", video installation, 2007|
The artist offered to look into the well at night and try to find the images of reality on the water surface, like in a mirror. At such moments the tower symbolically presented itself as an axis of the universe.
|Elena Lukyanova. "A Window into a Museum", installation, 2007|
Window as a metaphor of the possibility to see allowed the audience to look at something which is yet "hidden" inside. The "onlookers" saw a fantastic world of contemporary museums, got to know the masterpieces of museum architecture, took a trip to the wonderful spaces of future today.

"The history of the tower went deeply underground and mixed with the layers of nature which were not influenced by a human, eventually resulting in the germination of something new, which would be neither part of nature nor something "created" immediately by man, it should be something between these worlds…"
