an empty space in Ottensen, contaminated by history, capital, and asbestos

Performance in series "Stadtfahrt," Hamburg, 1993.

A bus tour of the sites of two Jewish cemeteries in Hamburg, Germany, in which the tour members, each reading a paragraph, construct a complex mosaic of texts about land ownership and use, Nazi and other persecutions, shopping centers, bones buried and exhumed, and historical contaminations. Performed during the High Holy Days.
