Performance in a political context. Algeria-Tunisia-Libya
(Die Installation stellt mit verschiedenen Techniken eine Kunstperformance mit politischem Inhalt dar.)
Psychogeography, a subfield of geography, was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals."
By definition, psychogeography combines subjective and objective knowledge and studies. Debord struggled to stipulate the finer points of this theoretical paradox, ultimately producing "Theory of the Dérive" in 1958, a document which essentially serves as an instruction manual for the psychogeographic procedure, executed through the act of dérive.
People can see nothing around them that is not their own image; everything speaks to them of themselves. Their very landscape is animated. Obstacles were everywhere. And they were all interrelated, maintaining a unified reign of poverty.
The installation includes a replica of a landscape of North Africa (plaster), Maps with Geographic cordinate latitude and longitude, Six Color prints (50x50cm) and Original Recording. Please click on the following link
