Access Exit I/X
Access Exit I/X was performed June 29, 2014 for 90-minutes by Truax and Knaus in Berlin at 13.4.1981 by Olaf Metzel (1987).
“Before your performance, I felt the crowd-barrier sculpture had given up a certain political statement. There is a playful but dangerous offer made by the work, now sited outside Universal Music Studios on the Mediaspree, that formulates in relation to the violence of capital accumulation and abstracted global markets. In a way, through giving the work your bodies, questions around bodily consent, enthusiastic consent and political consensus are rearticulated and a sense of agency is re-introduced back into the work and its public arena.”
