Commentary
Artists

The ›Eulenspieglerin‹ is the female counterpart of the fool who is allowed to hold a mirror up to the powerful, being beyond social conventions. In this video, several versions of a performance with the same name are edited together, in overlapping photomontages. The artist tears from the wall a paper picture of the god Shiva who destroys the world in dancing and recreates a new version of it. Wrapped in this paper she begins to paint signs on the wall with white chalk.
