Three Biographies which are not mine

Mousonturm Studio 2


A Jewish miracle-worker, a Lebanese resistance fighter and an anarchist punk-band try to change a light bulb. No, no. They try to change the world. A story which ends: …and it started raining on the weary land. A biography which starts: I was born in Beirut. A song that goes: I get knocked down, but I get up again. A performance that summons three spirits of deed: Honi the Circle-drawer, Souha Bechara and Chumbawamba. I call for them. Who am ‘I’? Your medium, a story-teller, a witness, a vessel, a translator, a quote, a representation in a lecture-ritual for hyper-identification, getting too close to the object(s) of study.
