Flip Your Wig (Perrückt, 2003)
Heroes are hard to find. The few, who are considered to be worth remembering, are placed somewhere, soon to be forgotten. In the obscurity of arterial roads and shaggy groves characters of bronze or stone wait to be recognised. Maybe they freeze in the wintertime and in the summer the sun burns them. These two metallic men in particular stand in the shadows and only tourists or certain people, still living in the past, pay them more than a fleeting glance. Through the temporary intervention ›Flip Your Wig‹ the Urban Beautician bestows Mr Marx and Mr Engels new fluffy hair, felted from virgin wool on their cold skulls.

Performance at Marx-Engels-Forum, NAKT Berlin, 20th of September 2003



Camera: Carsten Eggers, Malika Keller, Steffi Bokeloh
