Re-enactment of a Performance


This video is a re-enactment of Joseph Beuys' important performance "How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare.”

It was necessary to make some changes.

We can no longer be certain of the efficacy of any discourse on aesthetics or visual representation.

We can only be skeptical of the need for lectures to be delivered at a sub-audible level.

We openly question the ability of deceased animals to comprehend arguments, whether complex or relatively simple, whatever their abilities when alive.

There is no need to bring anything into focus. We capture all material with perfect acuity.
