The project Telepherique began in 1989 with the intention to explore processes and working with people of different cultures. They started with mail-art projects, co-operations, and communication with people all over the world. Basically, Telepherique is Klaus, Danijela and Rene Jochim, from W?rzburg, Germany, but there were others that became members of Telepherique, because of the massive collaborations and projects: Ulf Harr, Echart Seilacher, Harry L?ftl, Stefan Au, Stefan Alt and Karin... The name Telepherique is the french word for funicular railway.
This name was chosen because of the intention gaining a view from a higher level.
