Natalia Pschenitschnikova / Alexey Kokhanov / Torsten Ottersberg

Irrungen, Wirrungen


The cemetery of the St. Jacobi parish serves Neukölln today as a park; no funerals have taken place here for a long time. Pschenitschnikova and Kokhanov, both active in the experimental music scenes of Moscow and Berlin, use St. Jacobi as the backdrop for the first part of a performance series dealing with memory and

Buried here is Bruno Bauer, first a mentor, then a bitter opponent of Karl Marx. This place is also significant for Theodor Fontane. And today, one last stonemason still follows the old practice of preserving memory from oblivion by inscribing inscriptions in the stone. His, Bauer’s, and the story from Fontane’s novel become entangled and confused in this performance, with sound artist Torsten Ottersberg as the third partner.
