Ubermensch A, 2009.
Solo performance / video, Ard Bia Berlin.
All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the overman: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment.
(Thus spoke Zarathustra)
While on a research residency in Ard Bia Berlin, Neitzsches ubermensch became a focus. A hospital room was set up for the course of the residency. In one strand of research an ex-officer of the French Military spent time in hospital bed. A looped video of stock film is played to him at all times. It was edited in such a way that it affected a rehabilitation. This could be viewed by the people passing the ground floor windows.
