Performance

1985                                                      June

Place:         Artists’ flat; interveiw to NBC correspondents

Material:                  a mirror, filmprojector 16 mm, 2 chairs

Illumination:          semidarkness

Artists sit with their faces to the mirror, backs to video-reporters while TOTART filmdocumentation is projected on the wall. Their faces could be seen in the mirror and that means artist is responsible for his action , but their position back to interviewers likens them to guerrilas. Metaphor of artist’s responsibility and social status in (totalitarian) State.
