Mette Kit Jensen
Work for Live Art Danmark
2013 “Fortællinger fra lukkede rum” at Hitparaden 1
Fortællinger fra lukkede rum
At our first Hitparaden festival, Mette performed the performance lecture that can be seen in the video below, in Danish. One point of reference for the work is the German 19th century writer Karl May, famous for writing numerous 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 the Native American reenactment camps that existed in the GDR. These, she claimed, were so popular because spending time there was mostly an excuse for running around and interacting in the nude.
