IM PARK_I Lie to History Let´s build your beautiful tower,
you charming boy

 

snow and trees

This piece is the performance of a play in front of a video camera.
 

baren tree and notes

The play takes place in a park behind the high rise buildings of the Allianz
(German Insurance, Asset Management and Banking Company) in Berlin.
 

snow, 2 legs and bending person

It is a performance collage between two persons and a choir.  

snow, 2 legs, in between a head

A threefold dynamic evolves:  

white board on snow, with different material

between the speaker, the higher authority and the public.  

black with writing

The speaker (the artist) recites a text accompanied by cut-outs from current newspapers, political speeches.
 

face, spit coming out of mouth, waterfall

A tower is erected from screws and chewed chewing gum.  

snow, hand in white gloves, small tower made of small metall rounds

around which the rituals of the play are performed.  

snow, 2 legs, bend head in between

This video-play-performance poses questions about trust, alliance, power
and powerlessness in the condition of global crisis.
 

snow, 4 legs
