let us definitively
cease our efforts
to steer our behavior
and focus on the transformation
of our constitution.

imagine a being
only half the size of the average human being
a homunculus
that will take up
considerably less space
than his ancestors

and so, for a long time still
he can live undisturbed
as we all want:
always the greatest of everything
always the best of everything
always the most beautiful of everything


Created for Festival Über Lebenskunst, Berlijn.

Festival Über Lebenskunst
Perspectives for sustainable living

17 to 21 August 2011 at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and in the city of Berlin. 101 hours of conferences, workshops, installations, performances, concerts, films, excursions, discussions and readings. For the ÜBER LEBENSKUNST Festival, artists, scientists and activists turned the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a place where visitors of all ages could try out the sustainable “art of living” around the clock. For four summer days and nights, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt showcased itself as well as the need to structure our lives differently, providing a space for experimentation in contemporary art and acting as a kind of “laboratory” for exploring new habits.
