The performance lecture Well somebody’s got to do it (Nogen skal jo gøre det) will take place underground in the tunnels beneath Carlsberg on the 21st of August 2014. The lecture involves a playful but concrete 7-step plan on how to perform a successful modern day coup d’état.
Even though the theme of the lecture is political and deals with aspects of activism, the work in itself is not bound to a certain political view, it rather speaks about politics and political action by portraying a dream or a fantasy that is in part highly feasible and in part absolutely outrageous. A burning question at the heart of the project is that of morality and ethics (e.g. how far can one go in order to achieve one’s goals and if the circumstances are dire, what kind of sacrifices can be made for ‘the greater good’?).
The performance is open to the public, but due to the limited number of places the visitors must book a time slot that suits them prior to the lecture by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a time between 17:00 and 21:00 on the 21st of August. Please write “Well Somebody’s Got to Do It” in the by-line and include your name and telephone number in the e-mail. The slot is booked when you receive an invitation from the artist stating the specific time and meeting place for the performance.
