Since 2006, the Japanese artist collective contact Gonzo has travelled around the world – from Helsinki and Offenbach to Nanking and Seoul to Okinawa and Japan’s Tohoku region, which was catastrophically destroyed by the great earthquake of 2011 – and on the road, their performances and installations addressed the many forms of contact and physical collision between people. Immediately after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, company members began to create a bricolage film from their own documentation in response to the situation. This film defines the image as performance and editing as physical contact, thus birthing a philosophy all of its own, while telling stories that cannot be replaced by language. “Minima Moralia” is a semi-documentary mnemonic remix of performances, cooking, eating, drinking and sleeping that offers the opportunity to reflect on contact in these times.
