Diverse in the Universe

2017, Sculptural Performance

The performative sculptures Wir Europa, Klein A and Double Ding (We Europe, Little A and Double Thing) combine together to create the complete Diverse in the Universe performance: They talk to themselves, to each other or interact with visitors directly. A world view through a filter of personal obsessions. They stammer, call out, recite, sing and rumble through their own contradictions, searching for a way out of the clutches of an all-pervading economy – in search of a universality that applies to everyone, without exception. Texts inspired by: Alan Badiou, Susan Buck Morss, Georges Didi-Huberman, Rosa Luxemburg, Friederike Mayröcker, Achill Mbembe, Ovid, Monika Rinck, Joseph Vogl, Wei Wu Wei, Slavoj Žižek.
