„TO THE ROTTENNESS I SAY YOU ARE MY FATHER. AND TO THE WORMS MY SISTER AND MY BROTHER“
Lecture Performance at the collective space Pedreira // Showing at Marmolprojectroom, Nov 2022, Porto(PT)
During a two-month residency I wondered where we can find formal or material zones of encounter between animals and people. With the method of „speculative fabulation“ I invented a historical story, which drifts between science and fiction. Through its processual character, the performance raises open questions, which are not answered by itself.
Am I thereby engaging in politically incorrect historical revisionism, or can the planting of a fictional history not also create a progressive future?
Isn’t the history of mankind anyway only a collection of archaeological speculations of powerful white men? Is it actually sustainable love or sustainable slavery to turn a wolf into a dog?
The parallel events and inflationary use of different media allows for little focus of attention. There are missing pieces in the story, certain drawings and words that emerge remain unreadable.
Here I refer to a certain „unavailability of world“, titled after Hartmut Rosa.
