»Where research is done, there lies the stone; where the stone is, research is done.«

Yvonne Christine Heussler, 2001

Determination of one’s own position is the first step in an orientation process.
Thus, the foundation stone marks and documents the moment of the IAT’s foundation
as well as its current position. As the IAT does not inhabit a fixed local form,
the foundation stone must be mobile and adaptable to the hardships of travel.

Grundstein 535

It is stored in a Swiss-made flight case and bears the inscription
»Institut für Allgemeine Theorie – Mobiler Grundstein 2001«.
