Fortællinger fra lukkede rum
Mette Kit Jensen performed the performance lecture that can be seen in the video below. One point of reference is German 19th century writer Karl May, who became famous for a large number of adventure stories set in the Wild West and other colonised regions of the world. But she also took the audience into the rather bizarre world of Indian reenactment camps that existed in the GDR. These, she claimed, were so popular because spending time there was mostly used as an excuse to run around and interact in the nude.
