alle menschen werden brüder
performance - bricks, dry ice, pop music, found materials
as part of "DOPUST - days of open performance" festival (curated by marko marcovic) and during the opening weekend of the new museum for contemporary art - MMSU - in rijeka the artist blocked all entrances with found materials. in front of the main door a wall, made out of bricks, was built so that no one was able to enter the museum anymore on a legal basis.
during the process of building the wall a pre-selected playlist of pop songs that were related to topics of closing borders, blocking doors, crossing the sea and charity accompanied the action. then safety buyo`s (rettungsbojen) were thrown to the other side of the wall to offer help of which then turned out to be a trap since those then exploded and got destroyed. the performance then ended up with the artist destroying the wall, accompanied by the song and european hymn "alle menschen werden brüder". The leftovers stayed in place as sculptures and documentation for one more day.
