Work for Live Art Danmark
2011 “Byggeren overgiver sig aldrig” at Samtakekøkken.
Byggeren overgiver sig aldrig
For Samtalekøkkenet in November 2011, Jakob performed the live radio play “Byggeren overgiver sig aldrig” (translates roughly to “the builder never gives up”) in collaboration with Anders Remmer. The performance of this radical piece (both in content and in sound-aethetics) on riots and questions around who owns the city can be seen and heard in the video below.
