I Can't Relax In Deutschland

2015
Performance, eighteen fishing robs
Duration: 4 hours
Arcadia Unbound, Funkhaus, Berlin

The idea of the project emerged from a series of discussions and meetings with the former director of the radio station from the DDR, whose building was the Funkhaus Nalepastra├če, where the exhibition took place. We talked about the social organization and the activities of the workers at that time in the building as well as current events. I invited people applying for asylum and local fishermen to fish freely in the river in front of the large impressive building. After the action, the fishing robs from the local fishermen along with the improvised ones from the asylum seekers were placed together as an installation inside the building for the rest of the exhibition.
