13th Performance Conference / Berlin, germany / 2005 / 10 minutes
BBB Johannes Deimling held one after another the letters of the word “COOPERATION” as high as possible until he cannot hold them anymore and finally they fall like leaves on the floor. With a string he bound the cardboard-letters around his head. 69 times he beats hardly his head against the wall. … This action is a statement, so it is not an acted image like we know it usually from the artist and it is a critically view on the theme of the 13th Performance Art Conference in Berlin: Cooperation. …
