On page 65 there are two photos from the presentation of the video from The Big Kiss, a performance with Mark River, MTAA from 2008.
In the show Subversive Systeme, curated by the editor, this video was presented in the vicinity of a video by epidemiC, where Franco Berardi (Italian Media Philosopher) reads the source code of the “I LOVE YOU” virus at the D-I-N-A (Digital Is Not Analog) digital art festival.
I love the combination.
Thanks Benedikt.

© Mannheimer Morgen, Dienstag, 28.10.2014 – Die Dramatik des Quellcodes Von Christel Heybrock.
KUNST: Die Ausstellung “Subversive Systeme” in der Stadtgalerie Mannheim zeigt Arbeiten, die Computer und Internet nutzen.

… und die zeitweise aufgerissenen Münder, aus denen sich die Zungen wie dicke Würmer hervorarbeiten, lassen das Ganze zum Horrorstreifen werden. So ähnlich müssen es wohl auch die beiden Darsteller empfunden haben. . .
NO, no, not at all it was “better”. AA Oct 2008.


Ausgesprochen schwierig ist es, in einer Performance, in der 24 Frauen schreien, den Kunststatus ohne weiteres zu erkennen….   ….Diese Performances berühren eher die Sphäre Psychologie oder die Soziologie als die Kunst.
Aus Die schwer kalkulierbare Entfernung zur Kunst Zur Ausstellung „Poetische Transfiguration des Digitalen“ in der Stadtgalerie Mannheim. Dr. M. Chlumsky: ZEITUNGSARTIKEL Rhein Neckar Zeitung. Text Nr. 67 9.11.2014.

Having articles about your work is nice and I never cared a lot about their content. It was ok, I trusted people, – some articles, as for instance Maria Chatzichristodoulou‘s article on my show at HTTP gallery (now furtherfield) published in Digicult in 2010, were even inspiring – but this time there are painfull errors. I don’t care about the somehow agressive negative tone, but the errors, yes. SHAME on you Herr Dr. Chlumsky.


Sowohl Štromajers „Ballettikka Internettikka“ als auch Abrahams „The Big Kiss“ verwenden die Digitalisierung, um klassische Performances zu verändern und zu komplettieren.
