Dan Bodan will be performing a few songs that he wrote recently. He will be performing them in
a set that was built for the exhibition by Maxwell Simmer. The songs are about being in Berlin,
and leaving Berlin, and then going back there. The set consists of clothing racks that have
manga-style drawings of boys on them. During the performance the clothing racks will be moved
around, and there will be lights and a short video projected on the wall. The concept for the set
was inspired by the Russian-Jewish set designer Boris Aronson (1898 - 1980). There's this really
good book of his work at the Kunstbibliothek.
