Performative Installation

Collaborative work with collective Anna Kpok.

This work takes a look at promises that were done in form of speeches towards the population of the city of Bochum during the opening of some for the city characteristic buildings, like an Olympic swimming hall, a university or a shopping mall. The makers reflected on these promises from a today perspective and illustrated this impression in repetitive performances and installations. The performative installation was running over 4 hours continuously each day. The spectators could come and go at any time, move around in the space and listen to the opening speeches over radios.
