Probable Title: Zero Probability (2012)

Part of the retrospective "Outside the Image Inside Us"


English /  90min

"Probable title: zero probability" is a lecture-performance about an event that is absolutely not possible. It starts with a simple question about ‘probability’ that turned quickly into uneasy matters, that put Hito Steyerl and Rabih Mroué in confrontation with the space of the zero probability where everything is possible but can’t be accounted for. Trying to enter into this space, Steyerl and Mroué develop a narrative about probability in art, mathematics, physics, and death. They try to calculate such a space where it is possible to be 100% alive and 100% dead. But can one explain how 200% percent probabilty fits into 100%?
