About

“On April 2nd 2015 I guerilla reenacted the photo performance (Untitled)  shot and performed by Dan Graham in 1969. I stood in the Ronald O Perelman Rotunda of the Guggenheim Museum New York and moved my camera around my body like a helix while taking photographs. Dan Grahams performance was documented by another photographer in 1969. The result has led to a photographic tableau.

On March 26th 2015 a gas explosion had taken place next to the apartment where I was staying. Since my requested photographer for the documentary, and I got involved into the consequences of the east village fire, it will only be my shots taken at Guggenheim Museum during guerilla photo performance. The result has led to a photographic tableau (Untitled 2016_1969, reenacting Dan Graham, Guggenheim Museum New York).

’Land You Refugee,’ title of the installation piece, has been taken from a demo poster photographed in Athens (Exarchia). Inter alia together with the essay ’Strategies ort he Non Stratified: Thinking the Outside (Power)’ (Gilles Deleuze, Foucault) a piece is formed in order to question a thought of resistance vs. political action.“
