Antonia Baehr

Abecedarium Bestiarium - Affinitäten in Tiermetaphern


90 min.

Friends and colleagues of Antonia Baehr each chose one animal out of the many that have become extinct, which is meant to reflect their friendship metaphorically. Each of them created a score out of instructions and materials, which Antonia Baehr then continued to work on. Categories such as "animal"

and "human", "man" and "woman", "dead" and "alive" are undermined.
