Séverine oder wie ein König stürzt II

lecture at Zionskirche Berlin

Lire mes journaux intimes

5 x 5 hours


The performance Lire mes journaux intimes (reading my diaries) was part of the group performance Obsédés. Everyone of the seven performers had an „obsession“ that she or he pursued during the exhibition. Every obsession followed special rules that determined the actions of each performer. As the drawing above shows, the actions of all performers provoked one another.

My obsession was to constantly read sections of my  diaries out loud. The visitors had to make a phone call in order to enter the exhibition space. Each time it rang, I translated one page into French.
