Video excerpt of Ivan Civic's recent marathon performance in Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. Inspired by the 1854 book of David Thoreau titled "Walden or life in the woods", the performance dealt with our lost memories of where we come from through the signs sent from our ancestors. Without the purpose of a spectacular performance, the artist stayed on stage for 101 uninterrupted hours, drinking only water, communicating with his audience through sign language, with lights on for night and day. Stage access was only permitted to blind people who could touch and feel everything during the entire duration of the performance. Just great.
