“Esprit de Corps” Human Chain, Mauerpark Photos

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of myself and six other contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Human Chain” was held at Mauerpark.

A human chain is a form of demonstration in which people link their arms as a show of political solidarity. It may also refer to people holding on to each other in series to reach precarious spots. or it may also refer to people walking shoulder-to-shoulder in the event of searching for missing persons in water or on land. Our “Human Chain” was a form of solidarity between the artists in the collective and an opportunity to navigate precarious descent into the cavity of karaoke at Mauerpark.

“Esprit de Corps” Tug of War, Mauerpark Photos

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of seven contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Tug of War” was held at Mauerpark. The game “Tug Of War” is an inquiry of balance. It is an activity that posits an air of playfulness despite the name with its explicit reference to war– the intent is to reconsider the game in a different context.

Redesigning the game, and distancing it from the traditional aspects, it presents a visual discrepancy that is further complicated by the repositioning of the teams in relationship to each other. Traditional movement is eliminated by the implementation of pivoting devices, and no longer do teams remain equidistant and rather will be standing facing their opponents.
