Gastspiel | Guest Performance

Eight residents of a homeless shelterare interested the offer to stage themselves as spectators in order to be seen in art exhibitions. They try to look into the lens of a fixed camera for an hour, so that their gaze seems to meet gaze of the later vis-à-vis sitting movie visitors. Every woman works as long as she wants. I pay the protagonists, distribute drinks and sweets, turn on the camera and leave the room. Each presentation of the uncut record will be announced by an updated exhibition poster.
